Why choose one of our kids book subscriptions?
Getting started with a children's book subscription is easy...
1. Set up your subscription online
Decide on a reading level, whether to add a sibling pack and how often it should renew.
2. Receive your welcome pack
We send a few introductory goodies out straight away, helping kids feel part of the club and get excited about their first book.
3. The first book arrives
Your first letterbox-friendly parcel arrives midway through the month after you set up the subscription.
4. The reading adventure begins
Will you start with the book or activity pack first? It's completely up to you!
The book subscription kids and their families love...
Great variety and we haven't had one we haven't enjoyed yet.
Your book coming through the post to my 7-year-old is like actual reading MAGIC
Both our children have been introduced to reading through this fantastic book club and are now avid readers
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.
It is genuinely amazing to have found something both me and my boy adore!
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!
LOVED BY PARENTS
An award-winning children's book club
"Such a lovely subscription service that puts well-tailored books directly into your kids’ hands.
Perfect if you’re super busy and a trip to the bookshop or library isn’t as frequent an occurrence as you’d like."
~ Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior & Junior Design Awards judge
A PROUDLY SMALL BUSINESS
Handpicking the very best children's books for our subscription boxes each month
We read and re-read every book before we put it in one of our monthly subscription boxes – they’re sent with love from our bookshelf to yours!
BOOK POST FOR KIDS
Our one-off children's book boxes make a perfect treat
Our past subscription boxes, containing a chapter book and activity pack, are a great way to give kids a taste of our book club without committing to a subscription.
Simply use BUNDLE at checkout to save 10% when you buy any three!
Our 3 subscription reading levels...
Illustrated chapter books for 5 to 8-year-olds
Perfect for reading together, though more confident readers may be able to read them independently.
Longer chapter books for 8 to 12-year-olds
A perfect next step for more independent readers - these books may not be illustrated and will feature more complex stories.
Substantial chapter books for 12 to 14-year-olds
Tweens and teens in the early years of secondary school will enjoy these books, carefully chosen to match their interests and maturity.
PERFECT PRESENTS FOR KIDS
Giving the gift of reading
We offer a range of gift subscriptions along with gift sets, one-off subscription boxes and fun extras.
We never include order paperwork and are happy to include a handwritten message at no extra charge.
Firstly, I was very happy with the choice and variety of books on offer.
After ordering 2 books, I received the package but one of the books was lost during the delivery (the package had been opened and reattached with elastic bands). I contacted Parrot street book club and they were great, re-ordering the book straight away and sending it to me promptly. Great customer service and very friendly people!
Loved this pack- the activities, recipe annd interesting facts were great. Looking forward to getting stuck in with my daughter.
I just finished it. I’m smiling. This magical book has a magical premise with humor, depth and love. The well developed characters and their particular points of view flow smoothly and I was in the fictional dream the whole time. Frank has his own eclectic style where the unbelievable is real. I laugh and feel nostalgic. 🏆
The packaging was great and the timing was amazing as it came with my august macaw box. The book was on perfect condition aswell as the activity pack. Absolutely fantastic.
Great characters involved in an exciting adventure. Didn’t want to put it down. Will definitely appeal to a range of ages, either read solo or shared out loud. Looking forward to the next adventure.
A lovely idea and nicely presented. Recommended.
Would be nice to have the option to just buy any book in your store plus any bookish accessories and have them packed up in a tote bag or box for a one-off gift.
Bought as a present for a picky reader and it’s got her attention
The fact that the books are wrote by authors that aren't so well known is just pure genius as they are completely new. Very well presented upon delivery. Would highly recommend Parrot Street to everyone as they are doing a tremendous job. Keeping children engaged in reading bu using their subscription service is so important at any age. Well done Parrot Street!
My daughter was so excited when her first book dropped through the letterbox.
She began looking through the book and reading it immediately.
I have a huge passion for books, and want to pass that to my daughter.
We read the book together each night, and the story itself has opened a world of imagination for her.
On a recent walk, she was so excited to find a pond and imagined it to be that of the one in the story and imagined what the characters would be doing.
We can’t wait for our second book to arrive!
Our grand daughter was delighted to receive her badge!
Our nine year old granddaughter who is an avid reader is thrilled to have joined a book club! The opportunity to write a review each month will certainly add to her enjoyment.
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. They are always keen to share the latest book to arrive during our FaceTime sessions and so, we too, are introduced to new books! It’s a win win situation in our family.
It is genuinely amazing to have found something both me and my boy adore! We received our first book this month and we have loved spending time before bed reading a chapter or 2, and going through the activity pack now we have finished the book. I cannot help but recommend both Parrot Street and our first book to everyone. Cannot wait for our next book in January!
We loved your books. The subscription is a wonderful idea, the activities always thoughtful, many of them fun. Sadly, my girls have now outgrown the selection. I will miss you!
I bought this activity pack for my 5 year old grandson. It looks very good, but as he isn’t getting it until Christmas I don’t know what he thinks of it. I’m sure he will like it though.
