The popcorn recpie

The popcorn recpie was very useful

Very glad to hear this ❤️

Me and the Robbersons

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.

Perfect present

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.

Wonderful!

I’m delighted to have found your small business we loved the book and my son found the activities interesting. Now his little sister wants some Parrot Street books too. :)

The product it a great idea but I was a little disappointed. Book looks great but was hoping that the accompanying pack would be a little like a panini book and magazine monthly I used to get as a child from which I read my way through lots of children’s classics I would never have come across or understood. It contained information that helped with comprehension - author fact file, historical context etc plus fun activities based on the book. For almost £6 more than the list price, the magazine was disappointing - I don’t think it adds much reading incentive.

I love this book club

I really love this book club l think l will give you ten points

Animals of madame malones music hall

Too advanced for her, she likes to read it in one go and this is too long with chapters, she let me read one page and then did not want any more. She tried to read it and became frustrated.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our website. We are sorry to hear that your daughter did not enjoy this month’s book. We send our Parakeets illustrated chapter books and recommend them for children aged 5 to 8 years old who are ready for that transition from picture to chapter books. All the stories are age appropriate and we strongly encourage families to read the books together if the child is not yet reading independently (and even when they are!). However, we recognise the timing of that transition is different for every child and we completely understand if the subscription is just not right for your daughter at this stage.

Great little packs

Difficult to write a full review on these yet as the they were for a present and have not yet been tried and tested by my grandson. From an adult perspective, though, I think they’re great! Lovely books, and add on activities too, which kids love. Wonderful idea

The Vanishing Trick

I liked this book because it was about magic and mystery.

Interesting pack

I’ve bought this for my daughter to try a new book and maybe enjoy the activities in the holidays. It’s a well put together pack with interesting activities relating to the book.

Great gift and fun treat each month

I bought this for my son as a way of spreading out his Xmas gifts a bit. After the excitement of Christmas had passed it was great to know there would still be a treat coming in the post.

It was lovely to receive the first book and activities, we are really enjoying the story and already excited about next month.

Excited grand children

Both my grandsons were excited about the first packs they received this month.
I even had a delicious jam tart that they had made from the recipe.

Panda Book Club

I bought this as a Christmas present for my 10 year old granddaughter. Judging by her reaction when she opened the present, she was delighted. My daughter said that she will definitely be starting a subscription.

Nice idea for a gift

A selection of past packs given as Christmas gifts to the children of my family (nieces, cousins etc). They all liked the idea of the activity packs, especially the associated recipes. I haven’t heard about the books yet, but they were excited to read titles they hadn’t come across before.
Nicely packaged, great communication and fast delivery. They also kindly added gift messages to those packs sent directly to the recipients.

Grandad’s observation

My granddaughter is thrilled with her subscription. She is an avid reader

Noodle the doodle

My son is enjoying reading this book and finds it quite funny. A great book for children who likes dogs.

a good present when you don't know what to buy!

an excellent present for a child who didn't want to read books without pictures - when he realised how good the books were, and that there was something to do each time as well, he really enjoyed them, and it has moved his reading experience on

Parrot Street!

We interviewd Parrot Street about a year ago, and it was fabulous! Such lovely people! We also love getting the books every month not knowing what it will be. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and thoroughly recommend it. ;]

A gateway to a lifelong love of books!

During the first Covid lockdown I found this wonderful book club. It was a blessing then and remains so now. My son is thrilled to receive each book and it’s opened us up to so many new authors. It’s a brilliant way to expand your children’s reading and I’m so glad I found it.

Excellent variety

This subscription has introduced my son to a range of books that I simply wouldn’t have discovered myself. It has taken the pressure off trying to find new books that I think will engage him, and it has introduced him to a variety of writing styles.
We love the related recipes and craft activities too. In fact, one of the recipes makes quite a regular appearance in our house now!

A magic carpet of books

My grand daughter loves receiving her monthly book , especially as they introduce her to lots of different authors and ideas. A fabulous idea.

A brilliant book club!

Absolutely loving the Parrot Street Book Club! My son (7) is quite a reluctant reader but the combination of his own post and the fun activities inside have really got him interested. The books are really well chosen and, as a primary school teacher myself, I really feel the activities are perfectly pitched and really engaging. Would highly recommend Parrot Street!

Highly recommend!

My daughter (7) and I love Parrot street. The books are excellent and the activities really bring the stories to life. My daughter loves to get her package in the post. As a home educator, this subscription is really valued as it enriches my daughters learning in a fun and enjoyable way.

Much excitement

Bought as a Christmas present but continued as my children love receiving their new books. There is always much excitement when they see the packages arrive and it has introduced us to so many new books of different genres that otherwise we may not have been picked up. The elephant book came at a great time when my daughter was doing a topic on animals. She enjoyed finding out about different types of elephants.
Have recommended to others. Thank you.
