Reviews

Bee manages to capture the cosy and nostalgic appeal of trains and stations but presents it in a graphic and contemporary way. The pictures are detailed yet accessible and will undoubtedly impact on a young mind. The vocabulary is creative and written in such a way as to encourage interaction * Write Away * Children fond of chuffing like a train will find their pleasure ramped up to a whole new level in And The Train Goes... by William Bee: a charming chronicle of the passengers who board Dibnah the engine... Cheerful and spirited, this is one of those welcome picture books that turns the bedtime story into live entertainment * The Independent * Rush hour at this station is full of lively sounds and motions, as a colourful collection of characters wait for the train. The illustrations have a quirky, nostalgic feel, while repetition and onomatopoeic language grows to a cacophony of sound... A great read-aloud book. * Junior * Beautifully illustrated and a joy to read * Nursery World *

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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.

Angela East

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

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
