Synopsis

Oxford School Thesaurus by Oxford Dictionaries

The Oxford School Thesaurus is comprehensive and easy to use. Each entry is in alphabetical order, with its word class and a broad range of imaginative synonyms with supporting example sentences. Guidewords at the top of each page and the full alphabet with a tab on the letter of the page make it very easy to navigate; the page design is clear and straightforward. It features useful tinted panels on words that are often overused, for example put, nice, or say. There are also almost 90 topic panels which focus on vocabulary connected to the topic to widen student's choice and inspire their creative writing. A wealth of material in a very solid package, powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a large electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. For additional free downloadable word games, puzzles, and activities, go online to the www.oxforddictionaries.com/schools website.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

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

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

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.

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

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.
