The Lovereading4Kids comment

Eight new stories about Grace and her friends: delightfully realistic they capture the details of a small group of friends whose lives revolve around the time at school – including standing up to bullies - and the complications with their families at home which they get through by supporting each other. Grace is a great character and her relationships with her very special Nana makes all these stories especially warm hearted.

Synopsis

Encore Grace by Mary Hoffman

Here are eight more stories of Grace, the popular character from "Amazing Grace" and "Starring Grace". Grace finds that her family is changing and so is her group of friends. There's a new girl who puts Grace's nose out of joint, a production of Sleeping Beauty that aims to be very different, a school bully to contend with, and goodbyes to be said to a friend who moves away. Grace has to adapt to a new member of the family, and learns how it feels to lose someone. And as always, when things change for Grace, she turns to stories for inspiration.

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

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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!

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

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

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
