The Lovereading4Kids comment

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.

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

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.
