From: £10.50 / month

We have such fond memories of reading books at this age that have stayed with us for life! It can be a difficult and confusing time for some children, so what better way to relax than to curl up with a brand new book, just for the love reading?



what kind of books are included?

With so many genres and subjects to choose from, it can be hard to navigate the latest children’s books. We hope we can help, and will pick a wide selection of exceptional new books – from timeless, thrilling adventures to mind-blowing books that can open the eyes to whole new worlds – bringing your child a huge variety of reading experiences. Books like The Explorer, by Katherine Rundell, My Life as a Cat, by Carlie Sorosiak, Rebound by Kwame Alexander or The Boy at the Back of the Class, by Onjali Q Raúf.

what about the activities?

Our oldest subscription is for well established readers looking to find the latest and greatest books. We will choose the most recent children’s novels from the most exciting writers, and deliver one every month, along with a set of activity ideas to help dig into the details of the book, bring out the inner writer or artist in every child, and continue to celebrate the joys of reading. We will always try to choose a brand-new book, so your child won’t have read it before, and we are looking for the very best in new fiction or non-fiction that’s available.

For older readers we’ll provide thoughtful, engaging ideas for ways to keep exploring the books. We want to encourage creativity and the artist in everyone, so each month there will be creative writing exercises, ideas for learning more about topics within each book and suggestions for creative projects, as well as a few ideas that might still get the whole family involved! 

How do you think Ahmet is feeling when he enters the classroom for the first time? Think about a time when maybe you felt the same way – what act of kindness might support someone in that situation in real life?

Explore your own home or garden: can you find inspiration to write a poem about something you find?

Explore somewhere new (if it’s safe for you to do so), make a map of the places you visit. Maybe you could jog or run with family and friends to explore your local area further!

Get active like Charlie Bell. Try out a new sport like: Basketball, Football, Yoga, or Running!

What animal would you visit Earth as? Research this animal, maybe you can spot it on a walk or in a museum, or in another art form?

Research different outdoor cooking techniques, make an Explorer campfire meal and enjoy it with family or friends.

Learn more about galaxies with Leonard the Alien, and make a fact file of your favourite planet!

Create your own recycled instruments like Ahmet and his classmates, maybe a cardboard and rubber band guitar or a rice shaker. Try writing a song with your family or friends!
