Representation in literature matters. Men are overwhelmingly credited with writing America’s favorite books, and books by women and non-binary authors sell for approximately 45% less than books by men. The Little Feminist book subscription highlights stories about girls and women that can inspire a new generation of readers of all genders and break down harmful gender norms. Little Feminist offers age-appropriate packages for kids ages 0-9 that come in monthly, three-month, six-month, and 12-month subscriptions starting at $19 a month. Each box contains two paperbacks (or two board books for kids 0-3) or one hardcover (one picture book for kids 0-3), as well as a bookmark and discussion questions.

Lillypost is another excellent subscription service for readers ages 0-7 featuring exciting board books and picture books for little readers. The site offers three subscription options: Board Book Box with four board books; Picture Book Box, with three picture books; and Mixed Book Box, which features two picture books and one board book. Kids can also feel great about using Lillypost, as the company donates a book to a literacy-focused charity with each shipped box. So far, the company has donated more than 90,000 books to enrich curious minds across North America.

Lillybox subscriptions start at $19; though, it’s important to note that subscribers do have to pay $4.95 for shipping.

Users have the option of subscribing monthly or prepaying for three- or six-month subscriptions, and pricing starts at $29.99 per month plus shipping.
