Reviews

'The Ice Man is a great cross-curricula text for science, geography and history. The book is an excellent length and packed full of interesting info.'

'Boys were very excited and I haven't seen boys of this ability as engaged in their reading. Students had no idea what a gladiator was and were impressed when they found out. All wanted to be gladiators by the end of it! Much better than the competition.'

'At the end of the session, three boys asked if they could take Lone Wolf home. This has never happened before.'

'Students loved Lone Wolf. The pace was good and they enjoyed the illustrations. The amount of text per page was good and lent itself to listening to children reading aloud in a group. My dyslexic children found the pages easier to read because of the line spacing. Some great opportunities for extension work.'

'Liam by Benjamin Zephaniah was very enjoyable and funny for teenagers: high interest level and clearly written, accessible and engaging, with topics that young people can relate to. Would appeal to weak readers at KS4 as well as KS3 which is a major strength.'

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

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.

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

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