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.

So, Lovereading4kids was created to be the best recommendation site for Children’s Book from toddlers to teens.

Secondly, it has been created from what we have learned from setting up our first book site
