Helping create little readers!
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a child, an Elephant Books gift subscription is an experience – of love, joy, and connection – that your child will never forget! Here’s how it works:
  • Order a 1, 3, 6, or 12-month subscription. Prices start at $17.99 plus shipping; making it less than you'd pay at retail!
  • Each month a package beautifully wrapped with an orange ribbon will arrive in the mailbox of your young reader. The child will be excited to see their name on the mailing label and read a personal gift message from you.
  • Your gift will contain 2-3 of the highest quality recently published hardcover children’s books destined to become childhood favorites and family treasures. We also send a few extras to enhance their reading experience, ensuring that it is both fun and interactive.
  • Buy with confidence! (1) 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, (2) Free Replacement of Titles You May Already Own. (Terms and conditions apply.)
  • Our prices are up to 30% lower than retail! With our 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions, the longer you subscribe the more you save.

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.

the books we got were really cute and unique, we would not have picked them. I also love the little detail of a library check out card.

Elephant Books is by far the best children’s book club! I’m a Speech Pathologist in the schools and thought it would be fun to add quality books to my library. It’s a great way to address my student language goals. My kids love the library cards in each book-each child gets to date and sign the card after we read it. Customer service is also top notch. Books arrived beautifully wrapped with their signature orange ribbon. Looking forward to my next shipment. Thank you! 😊

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!

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!

We gave a gift subscription to our great-niece for her 1st birthday. It was for 6 months, and I chose Elephant Books because of the reviews. This past weekend we spoke with our niece at a family picnic. I asked Stephanie how she liked these books for Abigail. Stephanie told us that they were Abby's favorite books! They loved them! I have a grandbaby due in January and was thinking of this for a gift, and really was sold on Elephant Books after hearing from our niece.

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!

Both my daughter and I LOVED this book. The imagination of Little Fox and the encouragement of her mother on her trip. We don't read books just for the sake of reading - we want a good story too, and this book sure delivered! Can't wait for our next shipment! <3
