Why Happier Every Chapter?
Reading for pleasure isn't just about fun. It is the biggest indicator of a child's future success. Yet, about 400k UK children do not own a single book & only 8% of children's books published in 2020 featured an ethnic minority main character. Our boxes of books, gifts & short stories aim to keep the love of reading alive.
Engage & inspire kids. No duplicate books

Love from our subscribers
Words cannot express how pleased I am with my purchase from these league of their own young sellers. If you haven't had the pleasure of ordering from them yet - you have no idea what you are missing. I will without a doubt be subscribing to their monthly book box for my stepdaughter - as she has read 10 of the 12 short story books already, and she loves them! When my 2 year old daughter is a bit older, I plan on ordering some for her as well. I want to thank you all so much for bringing back the love of reading into our household, and I wish so much love and success to you young ladies and your family. Please keep bringing joy into your customers lives. Xoxo
If you want a smashing surprise come to your house each month with amazing books to read and unexpected goodies, then look no further! My son was so excited to open the box, has already been reading the "big book of friends" and using the fantastic resources that came with it. It’s such a lovely way to encourage youngsters to read!
Can’t wait for next month’s box!
Having had the privilege of coaching these amazing entrepreneurs and also a consumer of their product, I can honestly say these girls put their heart into their product and have their customers in mind. They are always thinking of how to give their customers the best experience possible. From the packaging to the content 100% genius. Customer service impeccable! What more could I ask for?
Keep up the great work girls and see you at the top💕.
Kirsten and Aiyven are two of the most amazing young entrepreneurs and authors I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. I was interviewed by them for a live event and they were knowledgeable and interesting, showing great insight when it came to asking questions and fielding comments from listeners. I was lucky enough to have a book of mine featured in one of their book boxes, AND earn my book a brief showing on Channel Four, all thanks to them!
The idea of having a special little box arrive each month with amazing books to read and goodies, is an inspirational idea! My son has absolutely loved his first box and has already read the first novel. It’s such a lovely way to encourage our youngsters to read! The two young girls should be very proud of themselves! Can’t wait for next month’s box!
When the box arrives, I feel really excited to see what’s next in the reading collection and they also have cool gifts and different theme boxes. I love the little quizzes and the stories the girls write themselves and I think they’re an inspiration to anyone who wants to write their own books. I would recommend them for good readers and people who are imaginative & like going on adventures from their own house!
My daughters favourite Christmas present this year. It’s lovely to get a parcel in the post and my little bookworm loves discovering new authors. The little extras are also lovely.
When I received my first parcel, I was very excited to see what was inside the box and to discover what books I was going to receive.
As well as good choices of books I got two short stories written by the Mbawa book reviewers themselves!! I loved the mini notebook that had the motivational inscription at the front. I also received a hot chocolate powder sachet which I really needed at the time along other items such as a magnetic bookmark.
Overall I believe the Mbawa book reviewers 'Happier Every Chapter'is highly recommendable.
