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 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.
