Order by October 31st to get this box!
Q: My daughter is 8 1/2 and loves fantasy novels and graphic novels. Is there a way we can request certain genres and age appropriate content?Asked by Rachel L., September 2022
Hi Rachel, thanks for the great question! Unfortunately you can not select genres, as each box receives the same book(s) every month. However, we can guarantee that books and items will be age appropriate. If looking for a specific genre, we suggest heading to our website where we offer many one time boxes, and you will see all books/items listed prior to purchasing. Please feel free to message us directly with any further questions or concerns!
Q: I have 9 year old twins, a girl and a boy. I would want just the books only subscription. How can I ensure that they don't get the same books each month? Pink envelope said free shipping to Canada.Asked by Laura N., May 2022
Thanks for your question! While we can't offer different books in each box, the just the books box does include a minimum of 2 books each shipment, and is often shared by siblings. Unfortunately Pink Envelope was incorrect in their review, and we are unable to offer free shipping to Canada at this time. If you'd like to ask any further questions, please feel free to reach out directly.

Q: with the 3 and 6 month options, are they delivered consecutively or quarterly or every 2 months? Is the billing posted when delivered?Asked by Kimberly L., November 2021
Our boxes are delivered monthly. If purchasing a multimonth subscription, you will pay up front for X amount of boxes, and then receive one box a month. Your subscription will then be set to renew for the same amount of time you originally signed up for, but are able to cancel at any time prior to renewal. I hope this helps!

Q: Do the books show diversity in cultures, races, and ethnicities?Asked by Kisha G., October 2021
We try our best to include books that subscribers from all backgrounds can relate to. Please feel free to message us any time and we are happy to share some past books we've included! :)
I purchased this box for my 12 year old granddaughter. The first box was great--she loved it, especially the books. I was very disappointed in the second box as we are a christian family and it came with a book that does not align with our religious beliefs regarding same sex attractions.
I would kindly recommend that you alert the customers regarding sexual book content, especially in consideration of this age group and the fact that previewing and censoring is not available prior purchasing or gifting. Or perhaps it would be best to just not include books that are not appropriate for everyone. I am sorry for the low rating as it is a well put together box, but it is no longer for us which the rating indicates.
Thanks for taking the time to leave this honest review. While we try to choose books every month that will suit all subscribers, we know that sometimes we can not please everyone. We do however offer a book replacement when we totally miss the mark. If you'd like to reach out personally via email, we'd be happy to replace the book with something that your granddaughter would enjoy more.
Thanks for supporting my daughter's small business, and we look forward to hearing from you shortly.

It was a amazing little treat for my girls love that it came with multiples of items for them to share!!!
Shipped quickly such a great box ! Everything in the box was creatively put together and the books are amazing!
My 9 year old has a hard time finding appropriate books that match her interest but also her reading level. This box solves that problem! I love that I can feel comfortable letting her read these solo without me reviewing too much or reading with her. Also love that there are usually 2 books in a box, which is a great value, but also guarantees she will love at least one book so the box doesn’t end up feeling like a waste if one isn’t a hit. They also pick some awesome goodies and we’ve discovered some fun new places to shop small through the products! Jillian is very in tune with the tween audience and does a fantastic job with these boxes!
My daughter loved everything in this box. Perfect for a 10 year old avid reader. She couldn't wait to start reading the books.
My tween loves this box! It has a nice mix of products (stationary, self care, trinkets) and the books are perfect.
My daughter loved her box! All the items are great, everything was packaged beautifully, and it arrived sooner than expected. Absolutely no complaints!
Great first box!
