The Lovereading4Kids comment

With Father’s Day approaching, this could be the perfect gift for the dino-daddy in your life! Mark Sperring’s jolly rhyming text details all the fun the dino-kids have with their daddy, from trips to the park to a bit of rough-and-tumble play-mat wrestling, and describes the familiar moments in children's everyday lives with much warmth and humour. Sam Lloyds’ cheeky dinosaurs are full of character, and children everywhere will recognise themselves in the pictures; dads too will identify with their green alter-ego, and the scenes of chaos depicted will bring a smile to their faces. Great fun for sharing. ~ Andrea Reece


Dino-Daddy by Mark Sperring

It's not easy being a Dino-Daddy, but it's definitely a lot of fun! And whether it's a trip to the park or playing games at home, Dino-Daddy always has time for his two roaring dinos . . .

The park would never be such fun without him standing by.

No one can spin you faster - weeeeeeee! - or swing you quite so high!

And though he has a list of jobs he has to dino-do,

He always seems to have the time to play a game . . . or two!

Morning, noon and night, Dino-Daddy is the best, and life in the dino family is just as fun (and chaotic) as ever.

The perfect present for Father's Day!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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

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

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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.
