Synopsis

Boats by Margaret Parrish

Boats showcases some of the most amazing boats, ships, and watercraft to set sail, from Chinese junks and luxury yachts to fireboats and deep-sea submersibles. The most impressive features and feats of each watercraft are highlighted, while action photos show just how well these boats take to the water. There are 'Stats & Facts' boxes loaded with technical details, a glossary that explains seafaring terminology and technology and a 'Did you know?' section that includes little-known facts about each boat and ship featured. Find out about...The Deep Flight submersible, an underwater boat with wings. The World, a luxury cruise ship you can actually live on. The California Quake drag boat that races across the waves at 230 mph! The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, a boat with a crew the size of a small town.

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

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

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

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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.

Angela East

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.

Katie Lonsdale

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
