We would love to introduce your child to their next favourite writer! These amazing titles are hand-picked to keep children reading right to the last page, with a range of creative ideas to keep them exploring. There are still lots of family ideas too!



what kind of books are included?

The ideal subscription for children who love to read and want to find the latest, most exciting books each month. We think that 8-9-year-olds might like these books the most, but really strong younger readers will also like them, and older readers looking for a great book without it being too hard work might also find this category the best. We select brand-new books wherever we can so it’s less likely you’ll find something your child has read before. We will hand-pick the most exciting authors and books being published to create a collection of books to make all bookworms jealous…
We’re looking for age-appropriate books of the highest quality – full of incredible stories, new ideas and ways to make children think. We can’t think of anything better than helping a child find their new favourite author, and that’s what we’re hoping to find – books that children will remember for years to come. Books like Pages & Co, by Anna James, Charlie Changes into a Chicken, by Sam Copeland, Mr. Penguin and the Lost Treasure by Alex T. Smith, or Cookie! by Konnie Huq.

what about the activities?

It can be a struggle to keep children entertained without screens and television, but out tailored activity ideas every month will be full of creative, engaging things to do to delve deep into the world of each book. From puzzles and games and creative writing challenges that will keep children busy on their own, to new ways to engage the whole family in the reading experience, there will be something for all children to enjoy, and to share with others.

There will be recipes relating to the book, crafting projects inspired by the stories, adventures to find and whole new ways for your child to explore their creativity and imagination. Some activities might be quick and easy – games you can play, or drawing a picture of your favourite character to share with us – and some might take a bit longer – a project to work on together, like cooking a meal inspired by the book or keeping a log of everything you’ve discovered together outside that month.

Make your own Pringles can kaleidoscope like Cookie and her friends!

Write your own Cityville Times newspaper article about Mr Penguin, or someone else!

Go on a walk (if it’s safe to do so) and see how many things you can find that you think would end up in the Museum of Extraordinary Objects.

Make a note of all Charlie’s emotions – let’s make an ’emotional volcano’!

Imagine you were a Bookwanderer – what book would you visit? Write down one of your book adventures.

Share your favourite story with a family member or friend. Ask them to share theirs with you.

Bake an Alice in Wonderland themed cake, like Jack from Pages & Co

What animal might you turn into if you were feeling these different emotions: happy, sad, excited, angry, confused? Could you write a story using your ideas?
