Every day, children eagerly open a door to find a new book, unveiling a world of captivating stories, colorful illustrations, and engaging adventures. It's not just about marking the days; it's about cultivating a lifelong love for reading and imagination. These calendars foster a sense of anticipation and curiosity, making each day special as kids explore new tales and characters. Plus, it's a fantastic way to introduce them to the joy of literature, helping them build a library of their very own.


So, this holiday season, why not choose a calendar that combines the thrill of discovery with the magic of storytelling? It's a gift that keeps on giving, long after the holiday season has passed.

Shipping & Import

I bought two book calendars from Amazon UK for my children. When ordering from Amazon UK you have to pay for shipping. I didn't have to pay import VAT when the calendars arrived to Denmark, so I'm quite sure that Amazon UK collected it when I paid for the order. It says on their website that for some countries they collect the VAT when you order, but it doesn't list which countries.


Despite the fact that I had to pay for shipping, the overall price is quite good. I paid 400 dkk total for the Bluey calendar and the Peppa Pig calendar (200 dkk per calendar including shipping and VAT paid to Amazon).
