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

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

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

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 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!

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