Your book coming through the post to my 7-year-old is like actual reading MAGIC

Such a lovely way to introduce our grandchildren to authors they might not come across and to be able to help develop their love of reading and writing their own stories.

Thank you to Parrot Street for doing exactly what you wanted it to - to encourage and enable readers to love books. M is now a confident and able reader.

My son loves the books you send. The Macaw subscription has really challenged him in terms of themes, styles of book etc., which is exactly what we were hoping for.

You've turned my reluctant 5-year-old into a chapter book lover!
