Sailing for Kids by Gary Kibble, Steve Kibble

Sailing is a sport for life, and this photographic guide gives children aged eight or more a perfect introduction to the art. Written in clear, non-technical language it contains all the information young readers need to rig, sail and enjoy their boats - in safety. For those who want to go further, there are also tips on sailing faster and preparing to race. The book is based on the International Optimist, the world's most popular children's boat and an established favourite with sailing schools. This the official handbook to the RYA Young Opportunity Scheme, launched by HRH Prince Andrew as a campaign to encourage more children into sailing.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

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!

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 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.
