Frequently Asked Questions
What is Socio Lit?
Socio Lit curates the most brilliant socially conscious literature for kids ages 0 thru 12. Each month our members celebrate a unique theme like culture & language, the environment or civic engagement with award-winning books and activities. Our selections inspire learners and foster integrity, compassion, and service to community.
How many books do you recommend per month?
We recommend 2 books per club each month.
When will I receive my monthly list of books?
We post our book recommendation on the 1st of every month. If you create an account with Socio Lit, you will immediately have access to our contents. This will include why we're celebrating a theme, educational facts about the theme, recommended books to celebrate the theme, educational videos and activities related to the books, including indoor play ideas and outdoor projects, links to buy or borrow books, and forum to share ideas with other parents ideas.
How do you decide which books to recommend?
Selecting our books is the core part of our job, so we spend an enormous amount of time conducting online research and in-person scrutiny with parents and kids alike. We know you have access to hundreds of children’s books on numerous topics, so we opted to focus on socially conscious literature that will enlighten and inspire our readers.
Why am I paying $5.99 each month?
With a monthly membership you receive the full Socio Lit experience. The membership fee allows us to cover the cost of curation and Socio Lit's database, while giving you and your child the option to buy books from Amazon or borrow them from your local library.
When will my subscription renew?
Subscriptions renew on the date of purchase of months to which you are subscribed.
For example, if you purchased a plan on the 15th of January, you will be billed on the 15th of the months to which you are subscribed.
How do I cancel my subscription?
Please send an email to and we'll get you all sorted out!
What if I have children in multiple age ranges? How do I sign up for more than one club?
Create your account. Then sign up for multiple clubs. The club price for each membership is $5.99 per month.
What happens when my child ages out of a club?
To change your child’s club:
Send us an email requesting that we cancel your subscription.
Then create a new account.
Select the club that is best fit for your child.
Pay the membership fee, and you’re on your way.
*Make sure you do this BEFORE your next membership collection date, for the changes to take effect for your child’s next post.*
Why not just look on Amazon to find a topic and books related to it?
Amazon has hundred of children’s books on their platform that have not been reviewed or vetted by experts. You could spend hours browsing, or you could join Socio Lit and receive a list of expertly chosen books.
May we suggest the next theme?
You may send suggestions to our curation team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note however that we ultimately pick the ‘social’ theme we think is best celebrating during a particular month.
Could you explain what social consciousness means?
What is social consciousness?
Social consciousness is the awareness of important social issues.
How is it developed?
It is developed through books, first hand experience, or both.
Why is it important?
It is important because the more aware a person is of his or her surroundings, the more sensitive he or she will be toward social injustice.
Who is a socially conscious kid?
A kid who notices social problems in society is socially conscious. This will manifest into a strong sense of responsibility for social problems, and increase the likelihood he or she will look for solutions and take action.
