Annie Hoot and the Knitting Extravaganza by Holly Clifton-Brown
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Annie Hoot was a kind but scatty little owl. She lived in a tree house deep in the woods. She was always coming up with new ideas for things to do and her latest craze was knitting. But unfortunately, the other owls don't appreciate her wonderful knitted clothes, so she sets off round the world to find other animals who will.

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

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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 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.
