Families love our monthly children's book subscriptions
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!
LOVED BY PARENTS
An award-winning children's book club
"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 to ensure kids get to discover more content without preconceived ideas."
~ Sara-Jane Mee, SKY TV Presenter and 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 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

Let customers speak for us
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.
So grateful to Parrot Street for opening my kids' eyes to new authors, genres and publishers. They've read such a good variety and it has definitely helped them with their English at school too. We've often gone on to buy other books by the same authors.
Recently I've been really grateful for the older age group, Macaw, which has helped us navigate the new world of YA fiction.
Cant recommend Parrot Street highly enough!
My granddaughter eagerly looks forward to receiving her book. She has found it rewarding giving her time to chill from the modern hi tech world
My 6yo son really enjoyed the Dragon Storm pack. He’s not yet started reading the novel, but he loved the bookmark and the accompanying activity sheets. He is a keen baker so was especially excited to follow the dragon cupcake recipe. I would thoroughly recommend this pack, for bookworms and reluctant readers alike.
The young recipient of your subscription was delighted with the three books and activity packs she received. Excellent range of tasks and interesting texts, not just well-known ones. Would definitely purchase again, and will recommend.
The popcorn recpie was very useful
My daughter absolutely loved this book! It was very different to the type of books that she normally reads. I thoroughly recommend Parrot Street for broadening childrens' reading tastes. The ideas in the packs are fantastic too.
Bought as a thank you gift, the recipient was delighted. It's a well pitched (excuse the pub!) book for this age and suited the sports mad reader who enjoyed learning more about the origins of the beautiful game and the female perspective.
It's a perfectly packaged mix with enjoyable activities to compliment the book.
