The Science Behind StoryCaptain

Here’s How We’re Raising Little Readers

The Most Important Thing

Reading aloud to your little one is the #1 thing parents can do to set them up for future academic success. The impact lasts for years!

Studies* show that regularly reading to toddlers can lead to higher test scores all the way through high school. Controlling for family income, the difference is often more than a half year’s schooling!

*Organization from Economic Co-Operation and Development, PISA 2009 Results: Overcoming Social Background: Equity in Learning Opportunities and Outcomes, Vol. II, PISA (Paris: OECD Publishing, 2010) p. 95


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.

To ensure it’s a surprise for both you and your little one, we purposely don’t publicize the contents of upcoming boxes!

Your first box will be shipped within 3 business days of your order. Subsequent boxes will be shipped either at the beginning or the middle of future months.

Cancel anytime by emailing us at! We are so confident that you will love StoryCaptain, we also offer a money-back guarantee for unshipped months. Just email us and we’ll make it right.

StoryCaptain makes a great gift for many occasions- a new baby, a birthday or just because. Simply click on Give as Gift! You don’t even need to know your recipient’s mailing address as we will ask them to input it after getting the notification email. Gift subscriptions do not renew.

If you have more questions, check out or FAQ page or email us at! We would love to chat with you.

All Aboard!
