I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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.

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.

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 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
