Synopsis

Stina by Lani Yamamoto

Stina does not like the cold. In fact, she will go to any length to avoid it. Even in summer she will never go out without tights and socks that cover her knees. When winter comes she retreats inside, and invents ingenious devices to protect her from the slightest chill. The temperature drops further and Stina finally succumbs to the lure of her feather duvet and falls into a deep and dreamless sleep from which she is woken by a pounding at her door - two children tumble in blown by the icy wind and Stina learns that nothing can keep you as warm as friendship. Set in Iceland, this beautifully illustrated story is the perfect read for cosy winter nights.

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 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

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

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
