Welcome to Monkeebooks!
Monkeebooks was designed by a home school family for the intent of helping other home school families find resources to help educate their children. Homeschoolers are a unique group of individuals; let’s rise to the occasion and support each other in this small way by cheerfully passing on our books and talents to other homeschoolers while recouping money spent for the next school year.

Treat everyone with respect & honesty.
You are required to follow our rules. Monkeebooks will be a web site where specifically home school parents / grandparents / guardians will buy / share / trade or sell home school materials resources or related items. All Sellers will specifically sell curriculum & their related books, educational manipulatives, digital downloads, musical creation, co-op / community merchandise like tee-shirts with the group’s name or motto on them or teacher gifts such as jewelry. All resource listings must be related to a home school curriculum or encourage learning or support home school goals. If you are unsure if your product qualifies, please contact us here.
Common Courtesy: Sellers ship your products within 2 business days of monies received and provide your Buyer with a tracking. If there are any extenuating circumstances (e.g., a death in the family) please communicate your situation with the person you are transacting with so that they can proceed with their lives. Package your materials well and returns will be minimal.

BUYING ON MONKEEBOOKS
We allow Sellers set their prices as they see fit. MonkeeBooks is not always going to have the lowest price, although we strive to do so. Our mission is “Homeschoolers Helping Homeschoolers” – so if you find a great deal – grab it – if you have a great deal post it! Please do not harass a Seller or leave bad feedback if their pricing is higher than you have found elsewhere.
SELLING ON MONKEEBOOKS
Buy, sell, trade or share at your own risk. Monkeebooks is not responsible for the outcome of a sale. We reserve the right to investigate any reported complaints or any violations of our guidelines.
Digital Downloads: Respect other’s experiences by not posting digital resources that makes a historical event or experience seem less important, significant, or complex than it really is (e.g., 1940s Japanese Internment Camps, the Holocaust, 9/11, Roman slavery/American slavery, Civil Rights Movement, etc.) or disrespects or discriminates the beliefs or lives of our audience.
Digital Property rights. Your resources must only contain material that you own the rights to (copyright, trademark, and other rights) or that you have the legal right to use commercially. When you upload a digital resource to our services, you represent and warrant to us and to members who may use your resource that you have the necessary rights to use all of the content you include in your resource, that neither Monkeebooks nor any member will have to obtain a license or pay royalties to any third parties, and that the intended use of your resource by Monkeebooks or a member will not infringe on anyone’s rights (including copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights, personality, publicity, or privacy rights). Monkeebooks has adopted a policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We will remove resources that are identified in a valid legal notice as infringing, or that we have a good faith belief are infringing. Each time the seller will receive a strike, and after three(3) strikes we’ll close the account of that Sellers.
Posting Products: Do not post duplicates. Our cart offers variances and all kinds of options. Our search programs work very well, and if you feel you need more exposure, check out our advertising opportunities. Click here. NO porn or obscene images (even if you think it’s art) or language. This site is viewed by children as well as adults, so please keep things at a “Rated G” level.
Please note: Due to the cultural climate of our world, Monkeebooks will not be allowing any Sex Education materials on our web site at this time. We have decided to just not go there.
Posting Images. Use your own photos when posting pictures of your items for sale. Do not list anything without using a photo. Please do not use stock photography. Buyers need to see the actual product, flaws and all (if any).
Note Exception: If you are a professional seller/retailer and are selling new items, stock catalog photos are permitted.
Maintain your sale items. Each resource file you upload to our service must be complete, fully accessible, and in working condition at all times. If any part of your resource content is hosted on another platform or relies on a third party service, you must maintain the third party content at all times. (e.g., Dropbox) You may not require the purchase of any additional software or equipment not listed as required in your resource description. You may not require the purchase, subscription, or registration of an account with any other websites or services to access your full resource.
Do not post anything that isn’t your own creation. If you infringe on someone else’s copyright / fair use or intellectual property your product will be pulled down and you will receive a strike. If you receive 3 strikes, your account will be terminated. If you need to get written permission from another creator before using their work in your own, then please contact us or have them contact us so we can document it. You are responsible to take steps necessary to assure that you’re satisfying any legal requirements and/or research to find out if you are violating public domain laws.
AFFILIATE AND SPAM LINKS
Monkeebooks will not be used as a way to drive traffic to another website. You may not include hyperlinks to alternative sales channels such as another online marketplace or e-commerce site where your resources can be purchased. Doing so will result in a strike. If you would like to advertise or do affiliate marketing, please contact us to discuss.
Monkeebooks will not sell your personal information. Monkeebooks will not use personal information for anything other than communicating with you regarding your account. Buyers or Sellers are not to spam each other or use Monkeebooks to invite, promote or contact other users for profit or advertising without going through the channels already provided on the Monkeebooks site.
Thank you for choosing to support homeschoolers, we appreciate your business.
