A reassuring story designed to settle anxieties about school. Tortoise is worried about the things he won’t like. The school dinners, for example. But Tortoise soon learns that everyone is scared of something – even grown ups - but they learn to get over it.

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!

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.

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.
