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.

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