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

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.

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!

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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.
