• The Book Explorer is a brand new way to enjoy reading with children aged 3-6 years.

    An easy-peasy monthly box of books

    Receive three hand-picked books to your door each month

    Enjoy reading new stories with your child, hand-picked by The Book Explorer - we have searched out fantastic, little-known books by talented authors and illustrators, just waiting to be discovered.

    Follow our lead with activities & ideas

    Each book leads to more fun and creativity

    Take it to the next level with activities, crafts, creative ideas and more - created by The Book Explorer (with help from our education experts), and inspired by the books in your box.

    Explore the world through the pages of a book

    Our books encourage open minds and curious questions

    We couldn't call ourselves Explorers if we didn't head out into the world - and we have, discovering wonderful children's books. Each box contains books which will spark questions and introduce new ideas about nature, people, imagination or travel.

    Be part of the no-waste revolution

    Return your books and help us spread the love of reading

    There are some books you'll want to keep forever - but when your bookshelves get full, we are developing ways you can return Book Explorer titles to us for credit off a future box. All Pre-Discovered books will find new homes in community projects, or will be resold to raise funds for reading charities.
