Praise for the previous edition: Can I congratulate you on the BTEC book, it's great. We have ordered 70 books and one Teacher Pack. The whole department were in agreement that it was the best we have seen and is going to be really useful and the teachers guide is going to save us time and energy. Everyone sends a big thank you. Science Department, Medina High School, Isle of Wight The teacher pack offers some very good and useful suggestions for approaches to the delivery and assessment of these units. Some excellent scenarios are suggested and the encouragement to utilise some local aspects and issues is very good...I am sure that many centres will find the teacher guidance very useful as the pack has paid good attention to the unit content and assessment requirements for each unit and has provided some useful factual background with reference to other resources such as web sites, etc. An Edexcel reviewer commenting on the Teacher Pack

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

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

Lorraine Woods

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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

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!

Tracey Chorley

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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!
