The Lovereading4Kids comment

Is there a mum anywhere who hasn’t said that watching too much television gives you square eyes? That beds don’t make themselves? That fish makes you smart? I doubt it. Looked at from a child’s perspective and you suddenly see how strange these things sound. The book takes a different ‘silly’ saying for each page and it not only makes for a fun exploration of language, but also proves an unusual way of highlighting the special relationship between mother and child. Despite the silliness, this is a tender and affectionate story. The very best saying is saved for the final spread, ‘when she tucks me in my mum says that she loves me all the way to the stars and back’. ~ Andrea Reece

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 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.

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

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

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!
