The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little Hedgehog is about to start school and though he knows his mum is excited about that, his tummy is full of butterflies. Starting school can be a scary prospect for little children, and this cosy story will offer them lots of reassurance and also provide parents with a fun way of talking about what the experience involves. Little Hedgehog is very appealing with his school cap and satchel, and children will certainly be able to identify with him. There are useful supporting notes for parents too. ~ Andrea Reece

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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.

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.
