3 book bloggers share their thoughts on our new Macaw subscription

Range of Macaw level books and activity packs laid out including Burning Sunlight and When the Sky Falls


We're so excited to have launched our Macaw reading level for 12 to 14-year-olds. We think it's perfectly pitched for children navigating those early years of secondary school.

But don't just take our word for it. We shared our trial boxes with a number of book bloggers and we're thrilled with what they've been saying...


"...delighted to have been sent a title I hadn’t seen before!"

Jo Cummins from the Library Girl and Book Boy blog is an English teacher with a passion for getting high-quality books into children's hands. The review goes on to say:

"What makes these subscriptions so special is that each month, the recipient gets a carefully selected book from beyond your standard best-seller list. Not only that, but each book comes with activity ideas to help readers connect more deeply with the text."

"She is an avid reader so it was great to get a book she'd not read."

Jo Clarke is a children's librarian, award-winning blogger with Booklover Jo and will have her first children's novel published in 2022. She shared our Macaw box with her daughter and you can see what they thought here.

Review of Burning Sunlight giving it 4.5 stars out of 5

"It’s so great that this sheet is included and I actually think it was my favourite part of the whole box"

Amy from Golden Books Girl was particularly excited by the activity ideas and questions that accompanied the book. She even had a go at answering some of them herself and you can read the full review here.
