Reviews

Songbirds was an instant choice to support early reading in our school. Their colourful illustrations and variety of characters provide just the motivation our children needed. Julia Donaldson is a celebrated author who the children enjoy so an all-round must. Worth every penny. Literacy co-ordinator, Lydlynch Primary School, Hants.

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

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