How are books selected?

First, we review all books for quality.  We look for books that are award winning, best selling, or so good they should be award winning.  Above all we want them to be entertaining.  Books that will bring a smile to your face.  Second, we consider variety.  We take a look at all of our favorite books and decide what each book should be paired with and when it should be sent.  Our goal is to provide a good variety and mix up your bedtime story routines.  Third, we look at value.  We aim to ensure every subscription is below the retail value of the books inside each box.  

What award winning and best selling books have you reviewed?

We have reviewed and include many books in our boxes with the below distinctions.

What box should I order if I have a 2 year old about to turn 3?

Sign your kiddo up for the Toddler box as those are the books recommended for your 2 year old.  Close to when your child is turning 3, WeReads will notify you that we recommend your kiddo receive the Big Kid Box as there is a price difference.

When will I know what is in my box?

About a week before your ship date, you will be sent an email with the books selected for you.  If you already own one or more of these books, just let us know in 2 days and we can provide you with an alternative book set to choose from. 

The Plan

Do you have different  subscription plan options if purchasing as a gift?

Yes!  Customers wishing to purchase a gift have the option to either make a one time purchase or auto-renewing subscription.  You can indicate your preference at the checkout page.  

Is there a commitment when I sign up for a subscription?

There is no commitment with a WeReads subscription!  Choose to purchase on an auto-renewing Month To Month, 3 Month Prepay, or 6 Month Prepay plan.  You can cancel your subscriptions any time before your next renewal.  

When will my subscription renew?

Subscriptions renew on the last day of the month.  For example renewals on January 31st will be for boxes shipped on February 7th.

How do renewals work?

When you sign up for WeReads, you will be charged immediately for the first subscription month.  After you have received your first box, you will be charged on the last day of the month for the next shipment.  For example, if your initial Month To Month order is on January 12th, you will be shipped a box on the January 20th and your renewal payment will be on January 31st for the February 7th shipment.

  • - Month to Month Plans: Receive a box. Renew for 1 more monthly box on the last day of the month.  Repeat.
  • - 3 Month Prepay Plans: Receive a box every month for 3 months.  Renew for 3 more months of boxes on the last day of the third month.  Repeat.
  • - 6 Month Prepay Plans: Receive a box every month for 6 months.  Renew for 6 more months of boxes on the last day of the sixth month.  Repeat.

When will my subscription ship?

We ship boxes around the 7th and 20th of each month. If the 7th or 20th falls on a weekend or a holiday, boxes will be shipped on the following business day.  December will have an additional ship date on the 14th.  An email with a tracking number will be sent to you.

*The first shipment for July will be on 7/10 due to the 4th of July holiday.

Kiddo Info

Why ask for my kiddo’s Birthdate?

We ask for your child’s birthdate so that we can better personalize the box as your child gets older.  Additionally, each type of book box is then tailored to your child’s age.  For example, if you order a Big Kid Box for a 3 year old, the book selection will differ from a Big Kid Box for a 5 year old.  The books selected for 3 year olds would be shorter than books for 5 year olds.  The topics would also differ.  A 3 year old book selection would include a book about going to bed while a 5 year old book would be about going to school.  All books are fun for grown ups of course! 

Why Ask For Gift Recipient Email Address?

This allows WeReads to send a preview email of the books in their upcoming box. Alternative book choices can also be coordinated if need be.

Additional Questions

Do you offer international shipping?

Thank you so much for your interest!  Unfortunately, we do not offer international shipping at this time.

What is your return policy?

We do our best to send you the best books and let you know what books you are going to receive before your box ships to avoid returns.  But we understand that things happen.  If you receive a damaged book, just send us a picture of the damaged book and we will replace it with your next monthly shipment.   If you receive a book that you already have, you can return the book back to us and exchange it for a different one.  You cover the cost of return shipping and we can send you an alternative book with your next monthly shipment.  Exchanged books must be in new condition and shipped back to WeReads within 14 days of the day you receive your box.  If returns frequently happen for an account, we may ask that the account no longer have a WeReads subscription.
