Hello Atlas Family!
We are excited to announce that have expanded our service beyond being a book subscription box company with the creation of the Atlas Book Club Membership! We will no longer be creating monthly subscription boxes; instead, we will transition to an online book club still committed to bringing you globally diverse children’s books.
Atlas Book Club will remain THE Book Club for Culturally Curious Kids and Families! Our mission stays the same – (1) to help kids of all backgrounds see themselves in the books that they read; (2) to help all kids travel the world through books; (3) and to shatter single story narratives and stereotypes with our book selections. This new model allows us to commit even more strongly and fully to this mission so that EVERY KID has the opportunity to have the Atlas Book Club experience. With this new model, we are lowering the socioeconomic barrier; we hope to reach more families and have more impact.
An Atlas Book Club Membership allows us to reach more families, is more affordable at $249/year/household, more flexible for families, and more environmentally friendly. We are also giving you access to more books that meet the Atlas Standard, more culture, deeper immersion into the countries we explore.
The star of this new model is our curated Build Your Global Collection Booklists! You can simply purchase the books or check them out from the library. Easy Peasy!
Lastly, thank you for trusting me for the past three years with your child(ren)’s literary choices; I do not take that privilege for granted. With exposure to internationally diverse cultures and experiences, my hope is that we can contribute, even in this small way, to the cultivation of globally aware, empathetic and compassionate kids. We are really excited about this new direction and we hope you continue to support us!

Answers to Anticipated Questions
What is the Atlas Standard?
The Atlas Standard is how we select books that are globally diverse, engaging, and fun! Our selections feature authors and illustrators from around the world, celebrates global culture, showcases diversity within cultures, and shatters single story narratives. Since launching in 2019 we have explored over 25 countries and have helped hundreds of families and schools diversify their library in an intentional and inclusive manner.
Can I still purchase a monthly, 3 month, 6 month or yearly subscription to the Atlas Boxes?
No. Starting April 19, you will no longer be able to purchase a subscription to the Atlas Boxes. However, you will still be able to purchase boxes from our inventory of fan favorites! You can purchase a single box, or a 3, 6, 9 or 12 month bundle. These will be available for purchase until we sell out. All boxes will be shipped out in one shipment, not monthly.
I am a current subscriber! What will happen to my subscription?
All current subscriptions will expire on July 4. After July 4, your subscription will no longer be automatically renewed and you will no longer be charged. However, all current subscriptions will be honored. You will receive all boxes due to you under your subscription. We will never send you a box you have already received. All boxes will be shipped out in one shipment no later than July 31, 2022. Boxes will not be shipped out monthly after April.
Will boxes be shipped out monthly for current subscribers to fulfill their subscription?
No. Boxes will be shipped all at once to fulfill your subscription. For example, if you purchased a 6 month subscription but have only received 2 boxes, you will receive the remaining 4 boxes in one shipment. This supports our commitment to environmentally friendly practices – reducing our carbon footprint. You can choose to give your child all the boxes at once or dole them out monthly. You are in control!
What boxes will I received to honor my current subscription?
You will receive boxes that you have not received in the past. We will never send you a repeat box. The boxes will still be in the age category that you purchased. If you have been with us from the beginning and have all our boxes, we are creating special boxes just for you! Don’t fret! We keep great records and we’ve got this!
Why are you doing this? We love the Atlas Boxes just as they are!
We have often thought about families who cannot afford $39.99/box and those who have multiple kids in different age ranges and reading abilities. How do we make this easier and more affordable for them? This is how. Our goal is to reach as many families as possible and have greater impact and we believe this is a great way to do this.
We have also heard from you all that you want MORE BOOKS! The Atlas Team reads so many great books and it is getting harder to choose just one for the boxes. This way you get four book titles instead of just one!
Lastly, we are always thinking about how this company can be more sustainable and friendly to the environment. This new model cuts down our carbon footprint and reduces waste. We hope we have your support.
But I LOVE having a book delivered to my child monthly for them to read! What do I do now?
We gotchu!!! We really do. Every month we will publish a booklist, simply click on the Visit Our Book Shop link to purchase your books and that’s it. You can purchase all or just one. Plus purchases made using our affiliate link supports local book stores nationwide! All books on the lists have been vetted and meet the Atlas Standard. You have trusted us for nearly 3 years! You still do right? Check out this booklist breakdown to see how to use our booklists! Easy Peasy!
How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription at any time by logging into your Atlas Book Club account and following the prompts. You will not be auto-renewed but your account will remain active until the one year period is complete.
If your subscription renewed prior to you cancelling, and you received a renewal receipt in your email, this means your card was charged. Because this is a membership that gives you access to resources, once your card has been charged, we are not able to provide a refund.
