Book club

How the kids book club works

Each book that we read in the KidsClub has an accompanying pack, full of fun activities.

We organise our bookshelves (and our memberships) into three reading levels:

picture books, chapter books, and advanced readers.

Whichever you choose, there are hours of entertainment bursting from each pack!

Membership options

  • Book box membership. Receive a beautifully packaged box with the book-of-the-month for your chosen reading level and accompanying activity pack every month, delivered to your door in a letterbox friendly size. Just choose your reading level – easy! This membership includes full online access too. Note – this is currently only available in the UK.
  • Online membership. All the activities are uploaded to our clubhouse and ready for you to download at home. This subscription does not include a physical book/ printed activity pack which saves you money as you can borrow the book from the library, and gives you flexibility if you prefer an ebook or audio version. Activities are kept online for three months, to allow for slower readers.

For our fabulous chapter book club members

Aimed at intermediate readers, the chapter books in this section of the club have short chapters to help readers gain confidence as they move away from picture based texts (although you’re never too old to enjoy an illustrated book, and graphic novels can have very well written and complex plots so should not be viewed negatively).

Here are our latest chapter book reads …
