DISCOVER

We pride ourselves on sending books you won’t easily have discovered yourself, introducing subscribers to a huge range of authors and genres.

Reading more, and more widely, develops literacy, empathy and imagination.

ENGAGE

Book club-style questions and a fun-filled activity pack get children and their families thinking and talking about what they've read.

Nurture their love of reading and cement it as an important, life-long habit.

Your book coming through the post to my 7-year-old this month was like actual reading MAGIC!

A book has never made me feel this way before

Rose, age 10

My boys have loved every book and I’ve enjoyed reading it with them...sometimes I sneakily read ahead to see what happens!

The quality of texts and activities we have had from Parrot Street is excellent... we are introduced to new authors and books we haven't heard of

A brilliant way to encourage kids to read.

He's gone from hating books to carrying one into school every morning and stealing his brother's when he's not here!

It’s great to see a book club that focuses on engaging children in a wide range of books, authors and genres. It’s a clever idea to make the subscription gender neutral.
