An absolutely delightful debut from a brilliant new talent in the form of Christine Pym. Dive into this exquisitely decorative picture book of a bright underwater world, rich with colour and full of surprises with a little girl and her dog as they travel on a whale through the sights and sounds of the ‘deep’.

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.

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

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.

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

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

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!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
