MY BUZZ

Parrot Street is a monthly subscription book club for children aged 5 to 11. Studies show that reading for pleasure has a hugely positive impact on a child's educational and emotional development. We want our subscribers to enjoy and connect with great books, unlocking everything that is fun and fabulous about fiction! Every month our subscribers receive a letterbox-friendly pack that contains a book to keep and an activity pack with games, puzzles, instructions for craft projects and more, all inspired by that month’s book. Plus for every book we send out we make a donation to Beanstalk, a UK literacy charity that supports young people who are struggling with their reading ability and confidence.

MY BIO

Parrot Street was co-founded in 2017 by Emily Bright and Sarah Campbell. Emily's background is in producing engaging and essential content; firstly for television documentaries and then for B2B conferences. She is married to Stuart and has three girls, Polly (5), Diana (3) and Alice (1). Sarah has worked in publishing for fourteen years, most recently as Editorial Director for an academic publisher in London. She is married to Simon and has two boys, William (8) and Ted (6). We met at school, aged eleven, lived together in London in our twenties, and co-founded a book club that has been running for more than 10 years. We love reading, and we love reading with our kids. Above all else, we want to inspire a love of reading in them.
