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

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

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 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.
