The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month March 2017 Beautifully produced to make the most of its clever design, this is a book whose charm lies in its visual simplicity which leaves space for readers to dream their own dreams in. The cover has a beautiful vivid yellow moon slice cut into it which tempting leads the reader into a following the moon as it waxes to a whole, shiny full moon that is so bright that no one can sleep. And then gradually wanes until it becomes just a tiny sliver before all goes black. Following the moon’s progress is satisfying and a final spread with some information in it makes the book useful too. ~ Julia Eccleshare

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

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 fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
