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.

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

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!

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!

We got the picture book subscription and neither of the books (Crunch, Nipper and the Lunchbox) that came were very interesting or engaging for my 3 and 5 year old sons. I might of checked them out from the library because the covers and illustrations were nice but I never would have bought either book to put on my shelf to read again and again. We subscribed to several book crates and this was one of the ones we ended up canceling because we liked another much better.

EDITED TO ADD: I was promptly contacted by staff after my honest review and offered two new books to try from their subscription service. They were very gracious and wanted me to be satisfied with my purchase. I am awaiting the new books and will update my review when they arrive. Thank Elephant Books for caring about your customer.

We love getting the books every month, and so many have become my daughter's favorites! The customer service has been top notch as well. Recently, our dog chewed up one of the books we read almost daily, and I couldn't find the book on Amazon or through a publisher (I guess it has a pretty common/hard to search for title). I emailed customer support and they are sending a copy of the book with our next shipment! Very happy with this service :)

So impressed!

I ordered a three-month subscription for my granddaughter and accidentally selected the wrong age category. When I received the email stating the first subscription was being mailed, I noticed my error and sent a message back asking them to change the plan. Elephant Books immediately responded to my email and agreed to send out a second (correct) set of books at no charge! I was informed that my granddaughter could keep the books from the wrong age group and gift them to someone. Wow! I'm so impressed with their customer service! You've won a loyal customer!
