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!

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

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.
