The Parrot Street team is heading out on the road! We’ve carefully avoided using the ‘C’ word too much up to now, but in fact, just like any other small business, we’ve been planning for Christmas for several months. We’re excited that November is finally here, marking the start of our busiest season of the year.
We know lots of you are already getting started with your Christmas shopping (it’s never too early in our opinion). And we’d just like to remind you that books make the BEST gifts! Not only that, but our packs, which include a brilliant children’s book and accompanying activity pack, make perfect stocking fillers. If you’d like to get your hands on one, check out this list of shopping events that we’ll be at over the next few weeks, where you’ll be able to pick up an individual pack for £10 (not available online) and where we’ll be ready and waiting to chat with you about all things kids’ books:
