A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month January 2017 The different coloured crayons all have fun colouring in appropriately. Red crayon colours strawberries, hearts, a fire engine and Santa Claus while Orange and Yellow crayons both have fun colouring the sun. Young readers will have fun thinking about their favourite colours. ~ Julia Eccleshare

And learn to count with The Crayons' Book of Numbers!

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

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.

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

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

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

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!

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