Reviews

This scheme from Collins must be a serious contender for any school science department that is looking for a new approach to deliver the new national curriculum. Collins, the editor and the authors must be applauded for daring to be different in the way they have approached the curriculum content. School Science Review, Issue No. 331

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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

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

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.
