Find out how your favorite instruments actually make music. You can even create your own electronic music studio. Step-by-step instructions and illustrations guide you through dozens of projects and experiments.

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.

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 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!
