Synopsis

Frog is Frog by Max Velthuijs

Frog is not content to be just a plain green frog, he wants to do the things his friends can do. He tries to fly like Duck, to bake cakes like Pig and to read like Hare. But all his attempts are doomed to failure, and Frog is disconsolate, until Hare points out that his friends love him just the way he is. And in any case, he can swim and leap better than any of them! 'Frog is an inspired creation - a masterpiece of graphic simplicity.' - Guardian

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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

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

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

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!

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.

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.
