Why Things Don't Work Pack A of 6 by David West

As anyone who has faced major delays at the airport or had to sit for hours on a hot, crowded train can tell you, things break down from time to time. This high-interest series looks at six familiar machines and uses exciting illustrations to explore what can go wrong with them, to give a new slant on how things work. It contains cartoon-style illustrations that will appeal to readers who may be put off by traditional non-fiction books. Its content focuses on core technology and science concepts. Its clear annotation explains the artwork and develops visual literacy skills.

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

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.

Katie Lonsdale

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

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

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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