When you read a book to a child, you open up a new world of possibilities, expand vocabulary and start new conversations.

Get Started


Marmalade Books is a monthly children’s book subscription service for ages 0-12. Choosing the right books for your child, grandchild, niece or nephew can be difficult; with our years of experience, we can help you with these important choices.


    Once a month, we will send your child a selection of recently published books we consider to be outstanding! Starting at $29.95 CAD + shipping.


    Our special themed boxes make a perfect gift. These one-time boxes are available for a limited time. New themes will be continually added.

"Quality, age-appropriate children's books picked monthly by a respected expert in the field and delivered with a personal note from Grandma! It's a win for my grandchildren, for their super-busy working mom and for me!"

"Marmalade Books curates the most darling children books and bundles them up in a sweet little package with a personalized note for the entire family to enjoy. Opening our first box was a memory making moment and the beautifully illustrated books now happily sit on our bookshelf and will be enjoyed for years to come."

"Who doesn’t feel a thrill when opening a new book for the first time? It was the eager anticipation of beginning a literary journey which fueled my passion for reading from an early age. The Marmalade Book boxes are the perfect way to ignite a passion for reading in my own children. The themed boxes are wonderfully fun; we look forward to checking the mailbox each month to see what treasures have been delivered. For our family, it’s been a delightful experience and the perfect way to get everyone off their devices while exploring new authors and titles."

"Marmalade Books, what a treat for dedicated gifters of books. This is the perfect support, wisely selected sets of well written and well illustrated books for young readers packaged in a box that arrives by mail. First of all it is a happy surprise to receive two books in a box and second for children who rarely receive anything by mail it is a terrific treat to find a box addressed to them. I only wish I had more grandchildren to send these boxes to."
