Books with activities for tweens and teens

Keep their excitement for reading alive with a monthly book subscription box. Choose between two brand-new, carefully curated and age-appropriate chapters books each month and receive bespoke activity ideas, exclusive author content and more with every book.

The key to reading enjoyment for tweens and teens aged 12 to 14

  • Books in this category are typically over 200 pages in length with no illustrations.
  • We pick books that we feel sit comfortably between the middle grade (usually aimed at 8 to 12-year-olds) and young adult categories.

  • The books are challenging and thought-provoking with more complex themes than most middle grade novels but without focusing too much on the teenage angst and romantic struggles common in YA books.
  • Subscribers are offered the choice between two great books each month, reflecting their growing independence and giving them the opportunity to chart their own reading adventure. However, you may like to super-size the subscription and opt to receive both books every month (select ‘Two books’ above).

  • Each book comes with book club-style questions, activity ideas, jokes and exclusive author content, along with stickers and a review card.

  • Macaw subscribers also have access to additional and exclusive online content to accompany each book.

Subscribing for two siblings in the Macaw reading group?

Select the ‘Two children’ option above and receive a sibling pack. We will address every parcel to both siblings and they will receive two of everything except the book itself which can be shared. Read more in our FAQs.

For guidance this category is aimed at children aged 8 to 12.

All the essential details:

  • Shipping to the UK is included in the subscription price. We also ship to international destinations - additional shipping charges will be added at checkout. Find details of our international shipping charges here.

  • Our Macaw subscription boxes are shipped on the 14th of each month. Your first letterbox-friendly parcel will arrive midway through the month after you set up the subscription.

  • To get them excited in the meantime, we send out a welcome pack containing a welcome note, pencil, bookmark and embroidered patch within 2 working days of receiving your order.

  • Subscribers also have access to an exclusive monthly competition to win a fabulous prize from our publisher partners.

  • We are proud to support CoramBeanstalk, a brilliant UK literacy charity working in schools across the country, by making a 50p donation for every subscription box we ship.
  • All our rolling subscriptions auto-renew at the end of each term for your convenience. You can opt to stop the renewal at any time before the payment is taken via your account page or by email to us.

Lovely gift

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.

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 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.

SUBSCRIBING FOR SIBLINGS?

A sibling subscription is the perfect option when there are two children in the same reading group within a household. Receive one copy of the book to share and two of everything else.
