Reviews

'The book is a fine example of how a teacher can stimulate interest in his pupils. It is clear that [the children] have much enjoyed what they have learnt.'

, March 2006 'A treasure trove of ideas for class teachers with additional tasks for gifted students. Impressive presentation...which can inspire experienced and new teachers alike.

'This is an exciting and unusual book...There are explorations of art, culture, nature, accurate drawing and model making with a wide range of photographs and diagrams. This book is written for the teacher to use with 13/14 year olds and is more of an exploration than a manual but many non-specialists would enjoy this book as well.'

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 love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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