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.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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.

ant and bee

These delightful and much-loved characters are instantly recognisable to many parents and grandparents today.

"All my Ant and Bee books are for shared reading. If a parent or older child reads the black words then young children can join in the storytelling by calling out the words printed in red and all the other colours as they appear in the pictures and text."

First published in 1950, Ant and Bee title have been in print for over 40 years.
