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

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.

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.
