Frequently Asked Questions

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

What's the best reason to subscribe? 

Our books will inspire your children with ideas to create a more humane world. We cover a diverse range of themes including: Well-being, Environmental Care, Cultural Diversity and more. Each book is dedicated to creating more compassion in the world. Learn more about our books! 

What's included in a subscription?

Every month Little Humane Books sends you 1 or 2 high-quality children's books + tip sheets to discuss how they teach compassion. You also receive 2-3 engaging conversation cards to inspire interesting discussions (watch here).

And to welcome your child, their first book package includes a fun "do not disturb" door hanger that lets them show you when they're busy reading! You'll also receive a Reading Points card that shows how you earn Points for Rewards (details below!) Plus, every book comes with an eco-friendly bookmark

Interested in subscribing? Get started! And there are these bonuses!

  • A 12 month "Home Delivery" includes a personalized book where your child's name is in a story, or their book is signed by the author! 
  • A 6 or 12 month "School Delivery" also offers your child's class/library a free book, so their school can share even more great books!*

*A school may benefit from free books through their students when it also has an active subscription.

What are Reading Points & Rewards?  

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. A Reading Points card is sent to you, then monthly emails to notify you when you earn new Points and help you can claim your Rewards. You may also login to your Account at any time to check the balance of your Points and redeem Rewards by applying them to your subscription or shopping cart. Curious about your Reading Points? Login!

How do school subscriptions work throughout the year? 

Our School Subscriptions operate during the school year (September-June). During the summer break (July and August), we can pause these deliveries and once school re-starts we then continue delivering these book packages there. Or, if you prefer, we can deliver these book packages over the summer holidays to a nearby collection point.

We are also mindful of covid-19 regulations but should you have any questions feel free to email us

Please note: When you choose a School Subscription please specify the teacher's name and class that we should direct your children's books to. You will also see a list of schools/centers that we already deliver to, but if you don't see the one you wish to use, you can provide its name and address in your order. Interested? Get started!

How do Gift Cards work?

Our Gift Cards offer a way to give wonderful books to families, teachers and children. They can be used for any one of our subscription services for up to 6 months and the cards on our website are sent digitally. 

Purchasers control when their recipients receive their Gift Card; they are not automatically sent once ordered, so they can be unveiled when the time is right! A Gift Card receiver email address is only gathered for information purposes. Supplying a gift message is recommended to personalize the Gift Card. 

The purchaser receives an email with information they can use to inform their receiver of the gift. An 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 with your preferences, and include your Gift Card code on the order page. If you have an existing subscription you may apply the Gift Card to the renewal of that subscription. Gift cards may be used more than once as long as it holds value. There value applies to all order totals, including delivery fees. Get started!

How and when are subscriptions delivered? 

"Home delivered 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.
