Martin Spafford recently retired after 23 years teaching history in East London and, before that, teaching in Central London, Egypt, South Yorkshire and Southern Africa. He is a Fellow of the Schools History Project and an Honorary Fellow of the Historical Association. With Marika Sherwood he co-authored a teaching pack on the experiences of African, Asian and Caribbean service personnel in the Second World War. For the past few years he has regularly run workshops for PGCE and MA students at the Institute of Education and is currently helping as an occasional facilitator for Facing History and Ourselves (UK) for whom he recently ran a workshop on Identity and Belonging Great Britain for Brent teachers. He is Secretary of Journey to Justice, for which he is running workshops for vulnerable children in London and Newcastle looking at the history of struggles for social justice; is on the Education Committee for the Migration Museum; and is helping organise a conference for teachers and children in Islington addressing the question 'What's History got to do with me?' He has collaborated with a wide range of organisations creating extracurricular history projects for children including History and Policy, the Bishopsgate Institute, the Raphael Samuel History Centre, On the Record, LEAP Theatre Workshop and the British Museum. Most recently he has worked closely on oral history projects with Everyday Muslim and Age Exchange, with whom he will work with older people in Germany on the impact of World War One memories on the descendants of participants. He is currently applying for funding for an oral history project tracing the impact of migration in Leyton and has had a long interest in migration history dating back to periods of community work with Latin American and Bangladeshi migrant communities. Martin's degree was in English Literature and Language and he initially worked as a teacher of English , EFL and EAL so he has a keen awareness of how young people connect with the written word. He will be the writer on our team. Dan Lyndon is an Advanced Skills Teacher of History with 15 years of experience in schools in London.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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.

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

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
