The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 5+. Slimy, stinky fun is on the menu when you read this collection of poetry. There are poems about bugs, about spots, about worms and the best of all is the one about black socks!


Revolting Poems To Make You Squirm by Susie Gibbs

Contains many sorts of disgusting poems about hairs in your food, snot and bogey pie, exploding spots, blood-sucking leeches, slobbery saliva, not to mention things that get caught in your teacher's beard-and between their toes. The poets include Jack Prelutsky, Wendy Cope, Paul Cookson, and Roger Stevens.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

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

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

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.

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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