Young Reading: Series Three. The life of Britain’s most famous playwright told for children ready to tackle longer and more complex books. Titles in this 7th and final Level in the Usborne Reading Programme are for fully confident readers who still need to gain the stamina needed for standard length books. At 64 pages in length and up to 5000 words they use advanced sentence structure and vocabulary, and have more complex plots with subplots. Subjects include historical events, biographies and simplified versions of classic novels.

Other Young Reading Series 3 titles include David Copperfield, Samurai, and Story of Pirates.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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

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 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

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