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

What's included in a subscription?

To welcome you and your child(ren) to our community, the first time you receive our subscription service we will include a fun tote bag with your unique children's book to help carry our monthly books around and encourage your child(ren) to read wherever they go! 

Each monthly delivery will include our unique books along with complimentary items. This means you will have useful information about the book you receive, like which of our book themes it discusses and how it cultivates compassion. Plus, every book comes with a handmade bookmark, and extra small surprise to bring a touch more joy (ex: activity book, notebook, artwork, book for parents...). 

And if you subscribe for 6 months:

  • your Personal Subscription entitles you to one personalized children's book, meaning your child's name will be included in the story!
  • your School subscription entitles your child's class to receive one of our children's books of their own!

How does a subscription work?

We provide 2 types of subscriptions:

  • A Personal Subscription provides you children's books every month - and is delivered to your specified address.
  • A Subscription via School provides you children's books every month - and is delivered to your desired school.

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

We offer 3 types of books in each subscription to span 3 age groups:

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

The type of books included in a subscription may be modified at any time. You may also specify which of our book themes interest you most so we can prioritize your preferences. These are: Cultural Diversity, Activism, Humane Living, Environmental Care, Animal Welfare, Human Rights & Equality, Peace & Gratitude, Health & Well-being.

Within each subscription, we offer 3 types of monthly plans:

  • A "Month to Month" (monthly) subscription plan provides you a unique children's book and complimentary items every start of the month continuously. The subscription automatically renews every month on the 11th day. 
  • A "3 Month Prepay" subscription plan provides you 3 unique children's books and their complimentary items 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 unique children's books and their complimentary items 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.

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? 

Monthly packages for "Personal Subscriptions" are delivered by our delivery partner, Mondial Relay. On the 5th day of every month, we will prompt them to email you to choose a location that they can deliver your package to, so you may collect it at a pick-up point that suits you. Mondial Relay  aims to deliver packages in Belgium within 3 working days once they have your instructions. The delivery fee in Belgium is 3.25 €.  For UK, EU and international deliveries, packages should arrive in 3 to 6 working days and fees vary. 

Monthly packages for "Subscriptions via Schools" are posted directly to the school address that you provide us, specifically on the 5th day of the month via personal delivery. We aim to deliver packages to Belgian schools within 1 working day. The delivery fee for Belgian schools is 2.25 €.

As such, 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" and "6 Month Prepay" subscription plans automatically renew and re-bill every 3 and 6 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 Subscriptions via Schools work, given COVID-19? 

Our Subscriptions via Schools 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 Subscription via School, 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.   A digital gift card may be applied to any one of our subscription services for up to 6 months. 

Gift Cards may only be sent digitally. Gift Card senders control when their recipients receive their Gift Card. A Gift Card is not sent to a recipient at the same time that it is ordered. As such, a receiver email address is not needed to order a Gift Card, but supplying a gift message is recommended to personalize the gift. 

Once a Gift Card is ordered, the purchaser will receive an email with the Gift Card information that they can use to forward to their gift receiver or print and present to their receiver if they wish to do so. As such, a purchaser address is only needed for account management purposes. 

To set-up a book subscription using a Gift Card, simply visit our website, set your preferences, and include your gift card code in your order page. If a customer has a Gift Card and an existing subscription they may apply the Gift Card to the renewal of that subscription and whatever balance is left on the subscription will be billed to their credit/debit card after. A gift card may be used more than once as long as it still has money on it. Gift cards apply to the final order total which includes shipping fees.

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

When you order your first 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 existing and new subscriptions that you start. 

An Account allows you to also keep track of any Gift Cards and Book Lover Points (for Rewards!) that you receive and redeem them on new or existing book subscriptions. Have an Account? Login!

How do Book Lover Points and Rewards work?   

For every new book subscription and on every subscription renewal, we award you 5 Book Lover Points per month. After 50 points you can redeem them for Book Rewards! This includes discounts on a subsequent subscription renewal or new subscription and more! An email is sent to notify you when you earn new Book Lover Points, inviting you to review our Book Rewards and learn how to claim them. You may also login to your Account at any time to check the balance of your Book Lover Points and collect available Rewards (which are discount codes) that you may apply in a new order. Have an Account? Login!
