The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bright, colourful and very attractive to look at, this is the ideal book for any child getting ready to start school. Not only is it an excellent book to build vocabulary, with over 300 familiar words illustrated, it will also reassure young children apprehensive about this big step in their life by emphasising the fun and friendly aspects of school. It also provides parents with lots of opportunities to talk about what goes on at school. The final page takes readers through the whole day, from getting dressed to going to bed, and everything in between. A fun and very useful little book.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

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
