(Free delivery in our hometown of Victoria, BC, Canada. Boxes are delivered around the last weekend of the month). Visit our FAQ page for more information.
OPTION THREE: SALE BOXES
Occasionally we will have boxes that are discounted. These boxes can be purchased without a subscription and is a great opportunity to try a box. If you purchase more than one box and the boxes are to be shipped to one location at the same time, we will automatically look for a better shipping rate. If we are able to secure a better rate, the savings will be applied before your credit card is charged.

Your feedback is important!
"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!"
"Just wanted to let you know how much my grandkids love receiving their box of Marmalade books each month. Best investment I have ever made."
"My son received a subscription for his first birthday. We've received about 5 or 6 boxes now and I am SO impressed with each box. I've (he's) never received a book he's already had, we've also ended up with books I may have never bought him that end up being his absolute favourite. I get excited when the box for him comes LOL. We will continue with a subscription for every birthday now. Also, love that they are Canadian AND if you're wondering who Marmalade is... it's their cat. I mean come on."
"Marmalade Books is a wonderful service! My young granddaughter lives in another city. Every month she receives a hand-picked selection of age-appropriate children's books. It means so much to me to know she is receiving fresh, stimulating books on a regular basis, and not always rereading the same tired books that happen to be laying around. And I know my granddaughter looks forward to her new books! For her it's like Christmas every month. And when I visit she always brings me books to read to her. It means so much in this TV/ Internet age. Pat's knowledge in the field means my granddaughter receives only the finest children's stories, curated by someone with years of experience. I really cannot think of a better gift to give my grandchild...than the gift of reading."
"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."
"Thank you so much for two absolutely wonderful years. The book boxes came along at exactly the right time in their lives to capture their interest in reading, and at a time when their parents weren’t yet sure how to choose books. We deeply appreciate the impact they’ve had and the fun they’ve created."
