The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great read you may have missed 2011' selection.

Masses of wonderfully fun interactive elements enabling toddlers to learn about all kinds of transport and full of bright, bold illustrations and packed with tabs to pull, flaps to lift and pop-ups to pop. An utter delight for children (and parents).


Big Blue Engine by Ken Wilson-Max

Big Blue Train Engine is ready to roll and you can help! Switch on the power, pull the lever and talk to control on the phone, Now you're ready to attach your engine to the rolling stock and set off across the countryside. Through the tunnel lies the dockyard where you can load freight before returning to the station.


Wilson-Max's bold shapes are well suited for the large industrial scale and dramatic perspectives. -- Publishers Weekly

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

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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.

Katie Lonsdale

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

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

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!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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
