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.

Liz Evans

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

Emily Jacques

At Lovereading4kids we’re passionate about all the books we feature.

All the books we feature on Lovereading4kids are selected because we think they deserve to stand out from the crowd of the many thousands of other titles published each month. However, sometimes in a month, we wish to give that little bit more emphasis to a title or titles and to make it a 'Book of the Month' within its age range.

You’ll find those titles here in our Books of the Month page.
