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

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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.
