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 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

Lorraine Woods

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

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

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

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

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

The first two Maisy stories Maisy Goes to Bed and Maisy Goes Swimming, were instant hits with children and adults around the world.

Since then, Lucy Cousins, the multi-award winning creator of Maisy, has written and illustrated many, many more books about Maisy!

Lucy had only recently left art college when she created Maisy. She was sitting doodling when "Maisy just sort of appeared on the page … I just saw her character straight away. She doesn't really have a proper age but I guess she's about three. She likes doing all the sorts of things that toddlers like to do. She has friends and she looks after them. She's a good mouse."

And the secret of Lucy’s success? "I've always felt in tune with the pre-school age group and their love of bright pictures and colours."
