This is a great book for parent and child to share. They’ll thrive on the feast of facts and the big ideas that will give you the edge if you’re aware of them. Big stuff. And if you like it make sure you read Big Questions.

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.

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!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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.

Katie Lonsdale

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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