The Lovereading4Kids comment

Slip and slide the tab to make the pages come alive in this robust and playful book for toddlers. Painting, drumming, skipping and reading are just some of the activities in Playtime while delicious food including melon, ice cream and cakes are all enjoyed in Mealtime – and there is some tidying up afterwards! Bathtime is splashy and soapy while Bedtime is all the lovely rituals of getting ready for bed. Lovely books for little hands.


Slip and Slide: Mealtime by Maureen Roffey

A host of toddlers enjoy their meals in this chunky board book with a difference. Enjoy the pictures' transformation as lots of different boys and girls set the table, eat their food, make a mess and then help tidy up. This is a perfect book for sharing with toddlers, mealtime or not!

There are three other 'Slip and Slide' books by Maureen Joffey: Bedtime, Bathtime and Playtime.

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.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

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

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.

Angela East

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

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
