Books with activities for young readers aged 5 to 8

Get them excited about books with a monthly delivery of reading magic. Each letterbox-friendly parcel contains a carefully selected age-appropriate chapter book and bespoke activity pack that is sure to keep them hooked.

The perfect introduction to chapter books for children aged 5 to 8

  • Books in this category are typically between 100 and 200 pages in length with plenty of illustrations.
  • Our Parakeet subscription will help you make the transition from picture books to chapter books when your child is ready to take this exciting step in their reading journey.
  • Our Parakeets may be able to read these books by themselves, but we also believe that they are ideal for enjoying together.
  • Subscribers eagerly await the arrival of each new box which is addressed to them personally – reinforcing the idea that reading is exciting and enjoyable rather than a chore.

Siblings unboxing a Parrot Street pack.

  • Each book comes with an 8-page activity pack which we’ve created specifically to accompany it, plus stickers and a review card. The pack includes book-club style questions, puzzles, facts, jokes, craft projects, a recipe and more, all inspired by the content of that month’s book.
  • These activities really add to the fun but also help children connect more deeply with what they’ve read and how it relates to their own lives. They also help to get the whole family involved in the book club experience.

Subscribing for two siblings in the Parakeet reading group? 

Select the ‘Two children’ option above and receive a sibling-sized pack each month. 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 5 to 8.

The important details:

  • UK standard shipping is included in the subscription price. Additional shipping charges for international orders will be applied at checkout – find out more here.
  • Your first letterbox-friendly parcel will arrive midway through the month after you set up the subscription.
  • We will send out a welcome pack containing a welcome note, reading log, pencil and bookmark within 2 working days of receiving your order.
  • Subscribers also have access to an exclusive monthly competition to win a bookish prize from our publisher partners.
  • Every time we ship a box to a subscriber, we make a 50p donation to CoramBeanstalk, our charity partner which is doing so much to support children’s literacy in the UK.
  • 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.

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.

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.
