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.

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

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

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

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.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
