We're supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital

Nov 18, 2021 Mbawa Books

Last month we announced that we support the Book Aid charity. Well, that isn't the only charity we support. We support the Great Ormond Street Hospital through the WorkForGood platform. 10% of every sale through the platform goes to GOSH!

Here's How Much Trash We’re Producing, and Why It Matters

Nov 08, 2021 Mbawa Books

In 2014, more than 4.4 billion metric tons of plastic was produced globally. That’s enough plastic to wrap around the equator four times or encircle the Earth more than 16 times.Much of that plastic ends up as trash in oceans, which pose a serious threat to marine life.

What Young People are Thinking About Climate Change

Nov 04, 2021 Mbawa Books

Our generation is the most informed and educated about climate change. We've got access to information more than ever before, and this has led to a shift in awareness and thought. When I was younger, no one talked about climate change. Our generation is more aware and educated than ever before.

Only 1 day left until you can subscribe to Happier Every Chapter to get your hands on Non-Fiction November! ⠀We have learnt so much from reading Know Your Rights and Claim Them, and we can't wait for our subscribers to be educated on this interesting and important subject matter!

Charities We Support

The work of The Children's Society is close to our hearts and we partner with them in various ways to support.

For every new subscription bought through our website, we donate a book to Book Aid.

10% of every purchase via our Work for Good page, goes to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.

Meet the Creators

Kirsten & Aiyven are 14 & 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!". With the Happier Every Chapter subscription box, they aim to create an engaged community of readers through monthly boxes of bookish bliss for 8 - 14 year olds (Thought Leaders) with junior boxes (Little Literates) for 4-7 year olds too! 


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.
