The Lovereading4Kids comment

Well laid-out, and packed with information and interactive tests and activities to develop skills and understanding, this is just the book for anyone interested in becoming a pilot. It will tell them everything they need to know about flying helicopters, jets and commercial aircraft, from what the controls on a helicopter do, to the make-up of a jet engine. There are practical projects to try and readers can make a rotocopter or a string radio, and work out how much fuel you would need to pilot a plane round the USA. Once each section is complete, children add a sticker before graduating to the next task. Added extras in this terrific book include a press-out and make model plane. ~ Andrea Reece

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

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

Lorraine Woods

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.

Angela East

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
