I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

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

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

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.
