A chapter book

The books we choose for this age group are typically between 100 and 200 pages in length with plenty of illustrations.

Our Parakeets may be able to read these books by themselves, but we also believe that they are ideal for enjoying together.

8-page activity 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.

This is the second subscription I have ordered for my grandson, he absolutely loves them!

I have a subscription my book was wrong but was sorted fast

My January macaw subscription my book was wrong but I sent an email straight away and it was sorted and they sent me the book I chose

Ps:the subscription is amazing love all the books they choose


Very good

Brilliant Stories

The fact that the books are wrote by authors that aren't so well known is just pure genius as they are completely new. Very well presented upon delivery. Would highly recommend Parrot Street to everyone as they are doing a tremendous job. Keeping children engaged in reading bu using their subscription service is so important at any age. Well done Parrot Street!

Fantastic read

My daughter was so excited when her first book dropped through the letterbox.
She began looking through the book and reading it immediately.

I have a huge passion for books, and want to pass that to my daughter.
We read the book together each night, and the story itself has opened a world of imagination for her.
On a recent walk, she was so excited to find a pond and imagined it to be that of the one in the story and imagined what the characters would be doing.

We can’t wait for our second book to arrive!
