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

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!

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

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

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
