I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

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

Daisy Pennock – age 15

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 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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

Apparently, the national figure for families who remember Mother’s Day but fail to register Father’s Day is quite high!

At Lovereading4kids we want to change all that and have pulled together a number of special titles celebrating Dads.

They're also great to read with Dad...

So have a look at our selection, with free extracts to whet your appetite, and let Dads know what they mean to you.
