The Lovereading4Kids comment

From Friday the 13th through Lucky Pants to counting magpies this hilarious collection covers all angles of superstitions with poems that children will really want to read.

A short favourite of mine is:

I have a bag of apples which I keep just near the bed, and when the doctor rings the bell I pelt one at his head! – Geoff Lowe.

So, turn around three times, throw salt over your shoulder and buy the book.

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

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

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.
