Frequently Asked Questions

To address the questions we get asked most, here are some answers about how our book subscriptions work.

Are news updates available?

Yes! We send a quarterly newsletter with  fresh ideas to raise mindful leaders and special offers. Sign up for news! 

What's the best reason to subscribe? 

Our books will inspire your children to build a more humane world. We cover a diverse range of themes including: Health & Well-being, Environmental Care, Peace & Gratitude, Animal Welfare, Human Rights & Equality, Cultural Diversity, Activism, and Humane Living. Learn more about our books! 

How do Reading Points and Rewards work?   

When you subscribe for our books you receive 10 Reading Points each month. After 50 points you can start redeeming them for Reading Rewards! This includes discounts on subscription renewals, a free month of service, and a free book bag. An email and a Points card are sent to notify you when you earn new Reading Points and shares how you can review and claim your Rewards. You may also login to your Account at any time to check the balance of your Reading Points and redeem available Rewards by applying them to your subscription or shopping cart. Want to redeem your Reading Points? Login! 

What's included in a subscription?

To welcome you and your child(ren) to our community, the first time you receive your unique children's book package we include a fun "do not disturb" door hanger that lets kids alert everyone when they are busy reading!

Each monthly delivery will include a unique children's book and activity sheet. You'll also receive useful information about the book, including how it inspires a more humane world. Plus, every book comes with a handmade bookmark, and often a small surprise to bring a touch more joy (ex: stickers, notepad, postcard...). 

Plus, 

  • When you subscribe for a 12 month "Home Subscription" your children will receive a personalized book! This means your child's name will be included inside their book,
  • When you subscribe for a 6 month "School/Student Subscription" your children's class/library also receives a free book! This means your child's school can offer even more great books!

How does a subscription work?

We provide 2 types of subscriptions:

  • A Home Subscription provides you children's books every month - delivered to your desired address.
  • A School Subscription provides you children's books every month - delivered to your desired school.

(For more details see: "How and when are subscriptions delivered?")

We offer books for 3 age groups:

  • Pre-Schoolers (ages 3-5)
  • Early-Readers (for ages 6-8)
  • Keen Thinkers (for ages 9-11)

The age group selected in a subscription may be modified at any time. 

We offer 4 types of monthly plans:

  • A "Month to Month" subscription plan provides you with 1 book package at the start of the following month. The subscription automatically renews every month on the 11th day. (Only for School/Student Subscriptions.)
  • A "3 Month Prepay" subscription plan provides you 3 book packages over a 3-month period, where you receive a delivery at the start of every month. The subscription automatically renews every 3 months on the 11th day of the final month. 
  • A "6 Month Prepay" subscription plan provides you 6 book packages over a 6-month period, where you receive a delivery at the start of every month. The subscription automatically renews every 6 months on the 11th day of the final month.
  • A "12 Month Prepay" subscription plan provides you 12 book packages over a 12-month period, where you receive a delivery at the start of every month. The subscription automatically renews every 12 months on the 11th day of the final month. (Only for Home Subscriptions.)

Your subscription renewal may be skipped or canceled at any time simply by logging into your account and managing your subscription details. You can also email us the request (to hello@LittleHumaneBooks.com). Interested in subscribing? Get started!

How and when are subscriptions delivered? 

"At-home subscriptions" are posted by our delivery partners, Mondial Relay and bPost. The packages are posted around the 5th of every month and sent directly to the address you provide us.  You will receive an email from us and our partners to track their delivery. Please let our partners know where to leave your package if you might be absent! Our partners aim to deliver packages in Belgium within 5 working days, but some delays can be expected due to covid-19. The delivery fee in Belgium is 5 €. For other EU, UK, and international deliveries, packages should arrive in 5 to 15 work days and fees vary. 

"School/Student Subscriptions" are posted by our own team directly to the school address you provide us. The packages are posted around the 5th of every month. You will receive an email from us to track their delivery. We mainly deliver school subscriptions to Belgian schools. The delivery fee to Belgian schools is 2 €. For other EU, and international deliveries, shipping delays and fees vary.

For all cases, subscriber addresses are only needed for account management purposes. 

How often will my subscription be re-billed? 

A subscription automatically renews and gets re-billed based on its subscription plan (aka billing period). Our "Month to Month" (monthly) subscription plan automatically renews and re-bills every month on the 11th day. Our "3 Month Prepay", "6 Month Prepay" and "12 Month Prepay" subscription plans automatically renew and re-bill every 3, 6 and 12 months respectively, specifically on the 11th day of the final month. Your credit/debit card will automatically be charged the subscription fee unless you skip a renewal period or cancel your subscription. You may login to your Account to manage these settings anytime or make the requests by emailing us (at hello@LittleHumaneBooks.com). Have an Account? Login!

How do School Subscriptions work, also with Covid-19? 

Our School Subscriptions operate during the school year (September-June). When you order this type of subscription we will deliver all of your books during the school year in which you began the subscription, which means you may receive multiple packages in June. 

Please note: We are working with respect to COVID-19 regulations, which means you could experience a delivery delay on your School Subscription. We will always strive to adhere to our regular schedule but should you have any questions about School Subscriptions please email us (at hello@LittleHumaneBooks.com). 

What schools can subscriptions be delivered to?

Most of the schools, or educational centers, that we provide our subscription service to are those that teach in English or teach some English and are located in Belgium. When you choose a School Subscription we offer a list of schools and centers that we already provide subscriptions to, but if you don't see the school or center you wish to use, you simply provide its name and address before you Checkout. Interested in subscribing? Get started!

How do Gift Cards work?

Our Gift Cards offer a way to give our subscriptions to children's books as gifts. Gift Cards may be used for any one of our subscription services for up to 6 months and includes shipping fees. 

Gift Cards may only be sent digitally. Gift Card purchasers control when their recipients receive their Gift Card. As such, a Gift Card is not automatically sent to a recipient at the same time that a purchaser orders one. A Gift Card receiver email address is only gathered for information purposes. Supplying a gift message is recommended to personalize the Gift Card. 

Once a Gift Card is ordered, the purchaser will receive an email with all of the  information they need to inform their receiver about it. As such, a Gift Card purchaser Account is only needed for management purposes. Interested in offering a Gift Card? Get started!

To use a Gift Card, simply set up your book subscription from our website, set your preferences, and include your Gift Card code in your order page. If you have an existing subscription you may apply the Gift Card to the renewal of that subscription. A gift card may be used more than once as long as it holds value. Gift cards apply to the final order total which includes shipping fees.  Get started!

Why is an Account needed when I make my first order? 

When you order your first book subscription (or Gift Card) with us, you will be prompted to create to an online Account. An Account allows you to update information related to your order(s), like your contact details, and manage any subscriptions you start. 

An Account also allows you to keep track of and redeem any Gift Cards or Reading Points that you receive on new or existing book subscriptions. Have an Account? Login!
