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

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!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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!

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

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