Synopsis

Need a Trim, Jim by Kaye Umansky

Shirley's is curly, Mike's has spikes, Dave's has waves - they all have haircuts to suit their face. But no-one can remember what Jim's face is like, it is hidden behind an enormous fringe. He's not too keen to have his hair cut, but when he is finally in the barber's chair, it is a simple snip, Jim is trimmed! First published in 1999 for 3-7's.

Reviews

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

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.

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

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
