This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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.

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.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
