Joyful Stories for Diverse Readers.
Early experiences with diverse stories serve as both windows and mirrors. Windows to see inside the lives of others, and mirrors to see yourself reflected in the stories you read. At Sunshades, we believe all children should see themselves reflected in the stories they read.

Hi, I'm Nicole! I am a mom of two boys and early learning expert with a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. Sunshades began in February 2021 as an extension of our sister brand The Polished Playhouse. Over 500 families have shared diverse stories with their children through our boxes. I would love for you to join the Sunshades family!
Our Boxes in Action!
Have siblings? Make sure to add a sibling kit to your subscription term.
I appreciate these curated learning experiences in a box - it brings the topic to life and really makes it a memorable experience. I can’t wait for the next box!
We have purchased every box and the kids absolutely love each book and associated activity
These activities helped awaken my son’s curiosity about space and the stars, while also normalizing stories centered around people who are different than him. I am looking forward to more thoughtful kits like this!
This is our second box and it’s AMAZING. Everything is so thoughtful. The books are EXCELLENT, the activities are perfectly coordinated, and highly enjoyable by both me and my child.
Seriously every month these boxes just get better and better! The quality is amazing! We always look forward to doing them together!
