Subscribing for siblings?

Happy customers love our children's book subscription!


I love being introduced to new books and authors for my son


We love the steady flow of books that we wouldn't have found ourselves, and books that my son wouldn't necessarily have chosen.


My daughter loves the jokes in the packs. They have become a real highlight for her and the first thing she looks for.


The Macaw subscription has really challenged him in terms of themes, styles of book etc which was exactly what we were hoping for.


It's genuinely amazing to have found something both me and my boy adore!

Which children's book subscription should I choose?

Our subscribers are divided into three reading groups and each month everyone in that group reads the same book (or one of two options for our Macaws) - just like a real book club!

You will need to choose a reading group to get started but can always change this mid-subscription by contacting us.

Our children's book subscription FAQ

We don’t reveal which books we’ve chosen in advance – our subscribers are always the first to enjoy them!

The only exception being our Macaw subscribers who are offered the choice between two books on the 2nd of each month.

A welcome pack (containing an introductory guide, bookish goodies and a handy envelope to keep everything in) will be dispatched as soon as you subscribe.

Your first book box will then arrive in the middle of the month after you subscribe.

Each letterbox-friendly parcel contains a brilliant chapter book to keep, fun-filled activity ideas to enjoy plus stickers and a review card.

Each month's dispatch email will also include details of an exclusive competition to win a fabulous prize from our publisher partners.

You will first need to choose a reading level and go onto that subscription page.

Next, decide whether to add a sibling to the subscription.

You can then choose between a 1,3, 6 or 12-month rolling subscription.

Finally tell us the full name(s) we should address each month's parcel to before adding the subscription to your cart.

You can add more than one subscription to your cart before then checking out.

A one-month rolling subscription starts £14 per month. Committing to 3, 6 or 12 months will reduce the cost per month.

Sibling packs and the two book upgrade for Macaw subscriptions are an additional charge.

You can find all our prices here.

All prices include free UK standard postage.

We also ship internationally and you can find details of the additional charges here.

All our rolling subscriptions auto-renew at the end of each term, keeping your admin to a minimum and a steady flow of great books.

You can opt to stop the renewal at any time before the payment is taken via your account page. 

If you’ve got more questions why not check out our FAQs or contact us.
