Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up to receive free books?

Loving Little Minds prioritizes serving families who do not have access to diverse books. Every six months, we open up sign-ups to a new set of 50 families. These families will receive a total of six books over the course of the next six months, curated based on their age. Our goal is to be able to reach as many families/children as possible, and given our current funding situation, this is the best way for us to do so. Families may be placed on a waitlist.

Interested in participating? Check to see if sign-ups for free books are currently open by visiting our sign-up page.

Can I gift a subscription to somebody?

Yes! Many of our subscriptions are gift subscriptions. At checkout, please uncheck the box “Ship to my billing address” and fill in your gift subscription address underneath.

Can I pay for my family to receive monthly books?

Yes, you can pay for your family to receive curated monthly books. For $19/month, you can subscribe to the program for your family to receive a monthly diverse children’s book. You can do so anytime by signing up on our subscribe page.

Are you interested in helping another family who many not be able to pay? For another $19/month, you can sponsor another family to receive a monthly book. To become a sponsor, please visit our donate page.

I have more than one child in my family. How many books will I receive each month as part of the free program?

Each family receives one book per month. When you sign up, you can pick the age range (0-2 years old or 3-6 years old) for the books you’d like to receive.

If you’d like to receive more than one book per month, you may choose to subscribe to the other age range offered.

Can I sign up to receive free books in a future round?

Because we would like as many families as possible to benefit from the program, we currently are limiting each family to one round. If our funding situation changes in the future, we would love to welcome repeat families!

Where do I have to be based in order to receive books from Loving Little Minds?

We currently are able to ship our monthly books to those based within the continental United States.
