Finding a beautiful butterfly in her garden leads Lucy onto a thrilling exploration of all the wonderful creatures in her garden and the many colours they come in. There’s a pink worm, a busy brown spider, a snail with an orange shell, a green beetle and a stripy bee and finally, as a gorgeous pop-up, the butterfly reappears in all the wonderful colours of the rainbow. This title offers an explosion of bright, bold colour, ideal for teaching young children about basic colours and minibeasts. It features a glorious glittery cover! Other titles by Petr Horacek include Silly Suzy Goose, A New House for Mouse and When the Moon Smiled.

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.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

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!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
