The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the 2018 Klaus Flugge Prize | There are absolutely beautiful illustrations within the book, some of them exquisitely good, and the judges are excited to see what Semyinka will do next. They particularly admire the skilful change of scale that occurs throughout the little boat’s journey.

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!

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

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

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.
