Frequently Asked Questions

Our Twigtale Stories

What age range are your books intended for?

Our books are written specifically for children between the ages of 2-8. However, they may be of service to children outside that age range. We encourage you to look at the preview provided for each of our titles and see if our books will be engaging to your child.

What are they supposed to do?

Our books are designed to tell your story. Each of our titles was created with a more specific goal that will depend on the type of story you select. We have books about common childhood challenges, family changes, identity, love, separation anxiety and grief. Please see our individual books descriptions for details on what you can expect from that story. Our highest intention is that Twigtale books help parents talk to their children and help children deal with stressful transitions. Luckily, that’s exactly the feedback we receive daily.

These are not coffee table books meant to sit unused. Our books are designed to be read over and over again!

Who should use the site?

The site is intended for parents, caregivers, adult family members and helping professionals of young children ages 2-8. Children under the age of 13 may not use the site; please refer to our Terms of Use for more details.

Our Storyboard App

What is it?

Storyboard is an app that help families capture otherwise fleeting moments. Featuring editable templates such as Family Trip and Graduation, Storyboard makes it quick and easy for anyone to create a photo-driven story in real-time.

Where do I download it from?

The Storyboard App is available in the Apple iTunes store here.

We don’t have an Android app yet, but please email us at and we will notify you when it’s ready.

Can I see my Storyboard stories on

Yes! You can view and even edit stories that you start on your Storyboard app as long as you are logged in on the app. Just log in to and click on My Books. Your Storyboard stories will be listed there. Please note that changes made to your Storyboard story will not be reflected in the app.

Our Books

What should I expect?

All our titles are printed with a glossy finish softcover sure to be loved by your little ones.

We have a hardcover option for our top selling titles. Our hardcovers are finished glossy to ensure longevity.

All the internal pages of the book are printed on archival quality page with a semi-gloss finish and perfect bound (meaning no staples and completely kid-friendly).

Everything is printed in the U.S.

What do the books look like?

Our books all have 20-28 interior pages depending on the story. Our softcovers measure 8.5" x 8.5" and our hardcovers are slightly larger at 9" x 9".

You'll be able to see the design of the book as you are customizing it.

You can also return to those pages before you select "Finish the Book" to fill in any missing photos.

Building the Book

How do I save my changes to my Twigtale book?

Everything is saved on the fly. You can even leave the site, and come back to make changes as well. The book isn't final until you order the book.

Can I create a Twigtale book on my phone or tablet?

Absolutely. Our site is fully responsive, so visit from your mobile device and start building.

How do I add images to the book?

If you hover over the page while building the book, you’ll see if there’s already an area to add a photo. There are two ways to upload a photo to that page. You can drag and drop a photo from your desktop, or you can click that area and select a file to upload into that page.

There are some pages that allow you to add a photo area into the page. Just hover over the page, and you’ll see a button to “add photo”. When you click on that, you’ll see a photo area on the page where you can upload a photo.

How do I edit the text?

Most of the text in all our books is editable. Hover over the text, and click into the highlighted area, and you’ll be able to delete the text and edit.

What browsers do you support?

We support the latest versions of Chrome, Safari and Firefox.
