The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bright, attractive pages and friendly text scattered with questions and invitations make this book a great way to start children thinking about who they are and how they fit into our world. One double page spread follows Anisha throughout her day, from getting up to school, playtime and home life, concluding, ‘Can you draw some pictures of your day?’; there are pages on feelings, on clothes and food – what’s good to eat and why; and a page to show how what we can do changes as we grow up. Children are encouraged to complete scenes with colourful stickers of both words and images. An excellent and inclusive first book. ~ Andrea Reece

This brightly colored information book is a fun and interactive way for children to learn about themselves and the world around them. Learn about human diversity (skin color, hair color, eyes, tastes etc), about different emotions a person can feel, about daily routines, about different types of families and loved ones and about their body.

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 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

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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

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.

Katie Lonsdale

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’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.
