Synopsis

Shine Moon Shine by David Conway

One snowy night, in a great big city, a strange thing happens. The moon falls from the sky and lands on top of a very tall building. And no matter what the people in the neighbourhood do, the moon will not rise. That night, a young boy named Ata decides to sit with the moon to keep it company. In return, the moon tells him why he doesn't want to go home. It is so dark up there, the moon says. It makes me feel lonely. Ata tries again and again to make the moon shine, but nothing works. Until Ata has a great idea It's a simple and inspirational story, well told and beautifully illustrated. Most of all though it shows that one small boy, in having the courage to try, can achieve something wonderful.

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.

Angela East

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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.

Katie Lonsdale

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

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