The Lovereading4Kids comment

4+(Reception and Foundation Stage). A fun first alphabetic picture dictionary to introduce children aged 4 upwards to reading and writing and looking up words. Over 500 words listed in alphabetical order, each with an illustration and a useful phrase. The alphabet down the side of each page, with the appropriate letter highlighted, teaches first navigation skills. Additional thematic sections at the back focus on themes - including words from the calendar, outer space, fairy tales, plus the everyday world of the classroom and the playground. Val Biro's delightful animals and other characters make this the most attractive introduction to first dictionary skills.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
