I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

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

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.

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!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
