Membership is $39 per month. You get four books at a time. Hold on to the books as long as you like. Send books back to us whenever you’re ready. Once we get the books back from you, we’ll send some more right away!

You can cancel, pause, or resume the service at any time online.

The short answer is however often you'd like! We'll send four books to you, one for each theme you've chosen. You send back as many as you'd like, whenever you're ready, and we'll replace them.

It usually takes 4-7 days for books to get to you. When you're ready to send books back, you can log into your account to let us know which books you plan to return. We will process your next order as soon as USPS picks up your return package.

Our team reviewed thousands of books to find the best of the best (and we’re reading more every day). Of these, about 20% ultimately make it into our collection. We don’t have special deals with publishers on books we select. We truly scour anywhere and everywhere to find the best books we can.

You shouldn’t! We’ll keep track of the books you’ve received and will make sure you don’t get any you’ve had in the past.

With that said, we think it’s totally possible that a book you’ve already had may be relevant again to you in the future. If that’s the case and you want to read it again, send us an email at hello@getstorytime.com and let us know what book you’d like to get in your next shipment.

We’ve reduced our environmental impact in two key ways. First, we use reusable shipping bags. These bags last for at least 40 shipments (and hopefully even longer!).

Second, you get to use our books, have meaningful conversations with your children about important issues, and then send them back when you’re ready. This saves you space and clutter around the house, and let’s multiple families enjoy the same book. Rest assured that we’re doing all we can to reduce waste!

With an active membership, you can read and enjoy the books for as long you’d like. If you want to purchase a book, you can contact us at hello@getstorytime.com for pricing information. We have plans to allow purchasing your favorite books directly from the website soon, too!
