Synopsis

The Big Dark by John Prater

Little Chinoo the Eskimo is fed up. It's too cold to play outside and the Big Dark is everywhere - all the time. Then one morning, Chinoo and his parents set out on a long journey. On the way, Chinoo meets a cuddly little polar bear, a furry wolf cub and a gallumphing baby walrus, all wanting to play! But each time, Chinoo's parents tell him to hurry up or he'll miss it. What can it be? At the end of his long journey, Chinoo is rewarded with the glorious spectacle of the rising sun. Now, he can play outside whenever he likes!

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.

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

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

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!

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.
