I love seeing the excited look on my daughter’s face when a new Parrot Street book lands on the doormat. They are great, enjoyable and really well-chosen books.

Sara, Cockatoo Parent

I love Parrot Street because I can discover new authors and explore new books. I’ve loved all the books they’ve sent me since I started the book club.

Mali, 10 years old

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

What a fantastic concept.

Alex Steadman, Founder of @thefrugality & Junior Design Awards judge

A brilliant way to encourage kids to read.

Sam Dean, Beauty Journalist, Brand Copywriter & Junior Design Awards judge

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.

Sarah-Jane Mee, SKY TV Presenter & Junior Design Awards judge

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

Liz, happy parent
