Synopsis

Jamie Foxx Entertainer by Anne M. Todd

Though known for his work on television, in music, and in film, Jamie Foxx truly exploded onto the scene in 2004 with his Academy Award-winning portrayal of Ray Charles in the biopic Ray . The highly praised role showed critics and fans alike that Foxx was a force to be reckoned with. Foxx's earlier work had been a series of hits and misses, with bright spots including his stint on the popular sketch comedy show In Living Color and his platinum album, Unpredictable . Foxx's life was not always so golden, however. He grew up in the segregated town of Terrell, Texas, and had little contact with his birthparents. Raised by his grandparents, Foxx learned the value of hard work and believing in himself. Jamie Foxx tells the story of this rising star.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

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!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

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

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.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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
