Welcome to Lovereading4kids.co.uk


Reading is fundamental to the development of children and countless research shows the links between good reading skills from an early age and future success in life. However, finding books children want to read or authors that excite them, can be difficult; the choice is daunting and guidance rather thin on the ground.

Free emails and book extractsSo, Lovereading4kids was created to be the best recommendation site for Children's Book from toddlers to teens. It has been created using the experience we have as parents and book lovers, who want our children to read great books.  Secondly, it has been created from what we have learned from setting up our first book site lovereading.co.uk
