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

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.

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

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