I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

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.

Angela East

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!
