The Lovereading4Kids comment

Amazing real live stories of the endurance and courage showed by individuals faced with extreme situations. Those demonstrating powers of survival include the Arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, the crew of Apollo 13 and the world-renowned escapologist Harry Houdini. It is a thrilling record of the art of the possible.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

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.

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.
