Connect the Thoughts Dot Your Life, Free Your Mind by Chronicle Books

This journal provides an open-ended, visual way to record all of your favourites, interests, observations, and thoughts. Unique to this journal is the graph paper pages, which have dots at key points. Users connect the dots to create various sizes of boxes in which they can write or draw their answers to the prompts. Graph paper is great for both writing and drawing, especially for perfecting handwriting and mastering perspective and proportion. Graph paper also has visual associations with organization and record-keeping, which is a major theme of the journal. Frontmatter provides examples of how to use the journal, as does the back cover. The book includes ten sections, each with a colour-coded theme and specific, directed prompts.

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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

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

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!
