The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of our Books of the Year 2015 - December 2015 Book of the Month Jane Hissey’s Old Bear stories make perfect bedtime reading: warm-hearted and so reassuring. Many of her best-loved characters feature in these stories and the more threadbare her bears and toys are, the more authentic and lovable they seem. Her illustrations are so realistic that you really feel you could reach out and stroke the bears and it’s testament to her skill as an author that that’s what every reader will want to do. The stories are soothing and often have a gentle moral about friendship and working together. There are particularly seasonal stories here, including The Warm Snowman, but this is a collection for bedtimes all year round. ~ Andrea Reece

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.

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

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.
