The Lovereading4Kids comment

This was Sally Grindley’s second book published some years ago now and remains one of the most eagerly sought-out picture books for toddlers. Knock, knock who’s there?... Each time there's a knock at the door, there's a different monster, but each time they're wearing the same tartan slippers. First at the door is a great big gorilla with fat furry arms and white teeth. Next time there's a wicked old witch at the door, then a creepy ghost, then a fierce dragon. Illustrations that are utterly beguiling are by one of the UK’s most talented picture book artists, Anthony Browne.

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

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

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

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
