Immi by Karin Littlewood

Immi finds a beautiful wooden bird at the end of her fishing line, and every day after that she discovers something new, until her igloo is the brightest thing in the land. But where are these mysterious gifts coming from, and who is sending them? Hope and friendship echo across continents in this beautiful, timeless tale.


For all children looking for friendship wherever they may be. -- Chitra Soundar Very beautiful. Bookwitch This is a book that will be with you forever, we recommend it for all ages of children and adults. DolphinBooks - the blog The picture book can be used as a good way in to a discussion about friendships and morals with children in KS1; it may be a useful book for PSHE lessons to focus on relationships. There are also some beautiful illustrations which enhance the story. The Reading Zone A truly magical tale that brought a tear to my eye; how much a small kindness means and how little we know about the way a small gesture can bring happiness to one we have never met. Delicate illustrations accompany the story to perfection. Parents in Touch This is such a lovely book about the joy of both giving and receiving gifts and the pleasure in sharing those gifts with other. The Reading Zone One of the most beautiful picture books of the year. The Bookseller A story with quiet magic and beauty. Publishers Weekly Starred Review Truly heart-warming. Books for Keeps Five Star Review

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

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

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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