First Reading: Level One.

A beautiful re telling of this classic Aesop's fable illustrating the merits of hard work. Level One titles are designed to be the first real books a beginner reader will tackle and are designed to foster a lasting enthusiasm for books and reading. They are 32 pages in length, comprising the main story (up to 150 words), from classic tales to folk tales, delightful illustrations and 6 pages of fun, reading-related puzzles. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.


The Ant And The Grasshopper by Katie Daynes

It's the middle of summer and while the grasshopper is enjoying himself, the ant is busy preparing for winter and when winter arrives both the ant and the grasshopper learn something about the merits of hard work.

About the Author

Katie Daynes

Katie studied languages at Cambridge University and soon discovered it wasn’t just French or Italian she loved, but language itself.

Katie now has two little children of her own and they are definitely her fiercest critics.

Sam Bateman and family

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

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 is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
