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’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

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

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!

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