Reviews

This is perfect for new readers with fun and lively illustrations punctuating the story throughout The Bookseller Toad of Toad Hall would enjoy this as bedtime reading. Vulliamy's perky drawings are as accessible as a superior comic and guaranteed, alongside Hughes's racey narrative, to get young readers behind the wheel Observer

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.

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

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

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

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

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

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

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
