Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

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!

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!

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.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
