The Lovereading4Kids comment

When Phoebe and her brother Adam get left with a baby they are determined to keep her a secret. Although their parents have always fostered children they are currently living apart so it just doesn’t seem the right moment to introduce a new baby into the home. Instead, with little knowledge and no previous experience, Phoebe and Adam look after her in their shed. Can they keep Iris safe and can they keep her a secret? Phoebe tells their story vividly bringing to life the complication of their situation against a vibrant background of an unusual family life.

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.

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.

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
