Frequently Asked Questions

What is My Booksie Box?

A subscription service that delivers carefully curated, high quality, age appropriate, pan-African storybooks for children aged 3-12 years old as often as their parents/guardians want them. We also work with institutions that have reading programmes or book clubs.

The books come wrapped like gifts to make the process of receiving books exciting for young readers.

When will I receive My Booksie Box?

If you are in Ghana, you will receive your Booksie Box in 2-4 business days. If you are outside Ghana, your box will be posted within 3 days and you will receive it in 10-14 days. 

What if I already have the book you sent?

It’s awesome if you already have the books! It means you’ve been reading a lot. We’ll gladly exchange it for other books on our to-be-sent-list or you can give it as a gift to someone else!

Do I have to return the book?

No! You buy all the books in your Booksie Box. We want you to build a library at home.

How are the books selected?

The Booksie team researches and selects the best high quality, culturally relevant books that keep children engrossed while entertaining and teaching them. Our selections leave children craving for more books.

Why should I sign up for this? Why can’t I just go to a bookshop?

Booksie has been designed for families who love to read and buy books often. It is convenient because you get to pre-schedule how often you want the books and are assured that the books are high quality, entertaining and educational.

Booksie also saves you the time of looking for culturally relevant books, especially if that is at the top of your priorities for choosing books for your children.

Can I get more than 2 or 3 books in one Booksie Box?

Yes you can! We make customised boxes for subscribers who want to receive more than 2 or 3 books at once. This is usually the case for subscribers who live abroad or those who want to give out boxes to several children at once.

Just send an email to [email protected] and let us know that you’d like a customised Box.

How do I join My Booksie Box?

It’s super simple! You just subscribe here.

Great! How much is a Booksie Box?

Each box is 55ghc. However, you get between 10-20% off if you make an upfront payment for between 3 to 9 boxes.

Does Booksie work with institutions?

Yes we do! We love working with schools and organisations with reading programmes or book clubs. Feel free to email us at [email protected] if you’re looking to introduce children to African literature. We have a special discount for you.

Do you ship outside Ghana?

Yes we do! Shipping is free if you are in Ghana but costs 40ghc and upwards depending on the country that you are in. The shipping price for your country will show up once you begin the subscription process.
