Synopsis

Rivers by Leon Gray

The aim of this series is to encourage children to explore the wonders of the physical world around them - the geographical features that make our planet unique and amazing - and understand how humans use it. Towering mountains, gushing rivers, windswept deserts and jagged coastlines...each title will first look at the agents of change that form these landforms and then go on to explore the different types of environments in which they can be found, how they are used by humans, from dams to skiing resorts and how they can be conserved. Maps will show where features are found in the world and diagrams will explain formations and processes, such as how a river erodes its valley as it flows down to its mouth, a how block mountain is formed, how waves crashing the shore produce headlands and bays, and how wind scours caves in deserts.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
