  • How many books will I receive

    You’ll receive at least three books.

  • What books will I receive?

    You will receive two picture books (or board books for younger children). At least one of these books will be by a well known children’s author like Julia Donaldson, Emily Gravett or Eric Carle. We select books that have received great reviews and are loved by children around the world. Books are age appropriate, so remember to tell us your child’s age. Every box is a surprise, so keeping the exact titles a secret is part of the fun.

  • What happen if I want to buy a box but I have more than one child

    Tell us how many children you have, along with their names and ages in the comments section of your order. We will try to ensure that the box suits all ages. Normally we send a box suited to the oldest child, because a younger child will still enjoy a a story, even if they are a little young for it.

  • When will my box arrive?

    We send boxes between the 5th and the 10th of the month. We’ll let you know when your box is shipped.

  • Can I give the Book Owl box as a gift?

    Of course. Pay for a one, three or six month subscription, and we’ll send the gift. Let us know if it’s a birthday gift in the ‘Order Notes’ section so the Book Owl can wish the child happy birthday in the letter. A Book Owl subscription makes a great baby shower gift, and is wonderful idea for grandparents looking for a unique present.

  • What age range do you cover?

    The Book Owl caters for children from newborn babies to age 6. If you are interested in books for older children, let us know. We could soon be adding early readers and chapter books to our mix.

  • Will you debit my credit card every month?

    No. You pay upfront for your books. A six month subscription costs R1000 – and you will be debited this full amount when you pay. We do not store your credit card information. We do not continue to debit your credit card after you have paid.

  • Do you offer Afrikaans books?

    We do. When selecting your product choose the ‘Afrikaans’ option and we will send one Afrikaans book in your box.

  • How much is shipping?

    We offer free shipping to all major cities in South Africa. Are you from Knysna, PE, Bloemfontein, Pietermaritzburg? Well, we’ll deliver to you for free! We don’t deliver internationally at this time.
