Frequently Asked Questions


What is Booksie?

Booksie makes it super easy for you to find African children’s books through our Book Subscription Service and Online Bookshop.

We also have an Accra based book club that hosts authors for story time and teaches children how to read.

How does the subscription service work?

Every month, Booksie selects 2 books of the month for the three age groups we work with: 3-5, 6-8, 9-12.

We deliver these books to our subscribers all over the world.

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.

With the subscription service, you won’t know the books you will receive in advance because it comes with an element of surprise.

We suggest selecting something from the online bookshop if you want to choose the books yourself

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.

Do you ship outside Ghana?

When will I receive books?

If you are in Ghana, you will receive your books in 1-3 business days.

If you are outside Ghana, they will be posted within 1-3 days and you will receive them in 10-14 business days.

Kindly note that there may be some delays with international shipments because of Covid-19. We'll let you know immediately it ships.

What if I already have the book you send?

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 from your subscription. We want you to build a library at home.

Can I cancel my subscription? If I can, how do I cancel my subscription or skip a delivery?
