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.

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

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

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