Frequently Asked Questions

StoryCaptain is a monthly book club for children between the ages of 0 to 7. Each month you will receive a curated package of books that takes your child on a new adventure centered around a theme of a particular place, culture, or time. The books will be selected to complement each other, each showcasing a different facet of the theme.

We undertake an extensive process to identify books that bring together great stories, have beautiful illustrations, and are sure to spark your child’s imagination. We start by compiling a list of all the books that relate to our theme and review each and every one – often hundreds each month!


Our final selection includes input from two experts: a children’s librarian and a highly accomplished children’s author. Each month, we are looking to uncover two to three hidden treasures per club that are not already on your bookshelf and that showcase diverse perspectives on the theme.

We purposely don’t publicize the contents of upcoming boxes so the books are a surprise to both you and your little one!

The WobbleCaptain Club will feature three board books every month. CuriousCaptain Club members will receive either 2 or 3 picture books.

Our goal is to send you books that are not likely in your child’s library. However, if you already have one of our books, send us a picture of both of them at and we’ll send you a coupon for your next renewal.

We recommend subscribing to both the WobbleCaptain club (board books) and CuriousCaptain club (picture books) if you have children in both age ranges. We even offer a 15% discount for the duration of your subscription to both clubs! Simply email us at to receive your discount.

The WobbleCaptain club features board books and is generally appropriate for children between 0 and 3 years old. Children between the ages of 4 and 7 generally join the CuriousCaptain club, which will send you picture books every month. However, these are just guidelines as all children are unique. If you join and decide to make a change, we are happy to move your child into a different club partway through a subscription!
