Questions

Q: Do I get a tracking number for shipping?Asked by Katie, June 2019

They said it could take 5 days after placing an order for it to ship but I got an email with tracking information the same day I placed the order. Very speedy shipping.

by Kris M., October 2019

Yes! Every month I receive an email when my packages has been shipped with a tracking number. It’s super easy to know when the books will arrive.

Also, the support department is very helpful and quick to answer any questions. They adjusted an address for me with just one quick email.

by Kristina F., June 2019

Elephant Books does a great job communicating shipping information. Every month you get a tracking number.

Q: As soon as I signed to order pucture books the price jumped from 17.99 to 20.99?Asked by C W., October 2020

Elephant Books answered...October 2020

Hello. Our picture book subscriptions start at $17.99/month (before shipping and handling) for a 12 month order. The price increases for shorter length subscriptions so the longer you subscribe the more you save. Before finalizing your purchase you should be able to select the number months you would like to order, and the price will automatically update accordingly.

Q: My two year old grandson loves to have books read to him and pretends to read all the time. He is now starting to like longer books. Which set would be the best to order for him? Thank you!Asked by Molly W., June 2020

Elephant Books answered...June 2020

We would absolutely suggest picture books from your grandson. They’re great for kids ages 2 and up, particularly if the child is already starting to enjoy longer books. Plus, picture books provide for more of an opportunity to “grow in” to the material. He can start out enjoying the illustrations and later on become more engaged with the story…perhaps at some point even reading it himself!

Q: If I don't like a book can I return it? Asked by Sarah K., June 2020

Elephant Books answered...June 2020

There is no risk with Elephant Books! We have a 30 day, money back guarantee if you don’t like the service. And if you get a book you already own, just let us know and we will send you a replacement book the following month.

Happy reading from the Elephant Books Team!

We just received our Elephant Books box and I can tell lot of thought went into choosing what books were sent. I was looking for the service with the best book selection My daughter is 18 months old and we received the following:
Under the Sea Full of different tactile components throughout the book. Love
Tails: Super cute book. One page shows a tail and you guess what animal it belongs to on the next page The book is so bright colorful and we totally enjoy playing the guessing game together.
A Friend Like You: This is an actual story (appropriate for very young kids) that tells a sweet story that we can read together before naptime. Then she can fall asleep with padded board book.

This is a great box for kids! I can't wait to switch picture books in a few months when we get to that stage.

I couldn't be happier with the books we've received. Great quality picture books that I know my daughter and I will read for years to come. And I love the throwback packaging. Nicely done Elephant Books!

Update: We have now been an Elephant Books subscriber for years and the books are wonderful each and every month. They have been a lifesaver through COVID.

I gifted Elephant Books to my friend's daughter for her 4th birthday. She loves it! Shipment was fast and the packaging is very cute. Wrapped in brown paper with a red ribbon (I love minimal packaging). She received My Tails Not Tired and The Very Very Very Long Dog and she immediately wanted to read both.

My grandaughter is only 20 months old but she loves when her "eletant" books arrive, and she loves opening the package! Good quality board books and excellent variety.

This gift is fantastic!
I"m so happy to have found something that I can send new babies and little kids for their birthday that is truly a special gift and not something that will be outgrown in a month or broken in 2 days. Books are simple yet sophisticated....and the packaging is way cool. I love this subscription!

This Picture book subscription box has beautiful books but the age range is too broad. My 2.5 year old grandson didn’t spend 30 seconds looking at this months choice of a book on punctuation. Someday I’m sure he’ll be interested but a waste of my money right now.

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback regarding the books you received. We’re very sorry you felt the titles we delivered were too advanced for your grandson. While we strive to identify interesting and unique reads that are age-appropriate, we realize each child is different. That’s why we also have a great board book subscription for slightly younger children and of course our 30-day guarantee. It’s important to us that when we miss the mark that we strive to make it right. We’ll reach out to you privately to see how we can best address your needs.
