It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
