Happier Every Chapter Reviews
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💕.
I get the book box every month for my son Jamie, he loves it it makes him very happy and excu8rvery time he gets his box will only open it with me there he has extra needs and this is just a little thing that brings him joy, the girls who run it are so nice and accommodating, such lovely kids and family would highly recommend happier every chapter
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.

Meet the Creators
Kirsten & Aiyven are 13 & 12 year old sister-writers who are completely mad about books. Voracious readers & book reviewers, they have each written & published a middle grade novel . They also do children & middle grade book reviews on Facebook & YouTube all in the hope of promoting literacy and diversity in middle-grade literature. Their plan is simple "To make reading for pleasure cool again by sharing their love for reading & writing with everyone!".

Watch our creators speak about Happier Every Chapter on Channel 4 Steph's Packed Lunch.
Diversity, Equality & Inclusion matters. We experienced this first-hand when we were invited to take part in Channel 4 Steph's Packed Lunch Small Business Market featuring kidpreneurs. As young black girls, we were very humbled to be invited to talk about our passion and small business. Did you know that 1 in 8 children in the U. K. does not own a single book? Or that less than 5% of books in the U.K. have a diverse leading main character. At Happier Every Chapter, we hope to change the status quo, one book and one subscriber at a time.

It’s no question that the seasons (hopefully) change and fall is upon us. Unfortunately, nearing fall means that we start to see shorter days and darker evenings. As the temperature falls and the Halloween season rounds the corner, nothing can beat a nice book to get you into the Halloween spirit, here are our top picks!
Growing up is an interesting journey. You learn more about yourself as you age, and sometimes the lessons are not easy. Books are great at helping people escape these everyday problems and learn from others' stories. What better way to gain some inspiration than by immersing yourself in the autobiographies of the most intriguing people? This list of best autobiographies for kids are guaranteed to excite your loved ones!
Refugees are people who have been forced to flee their home and country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disasters (such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis). It is likely that your child will one day come across another child or adult who has had to leave their home country and we want them to feel confident in speaking to, and interacting with these people; so we came up with a list of books that feature refugees that we think your child will enjoy!
