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

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

Adam Graham

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

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

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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

In celebration of Usborne's 40th Birthday this year, a special edition of one of their first books has been published - The KnowHow Book of Spycraft - by the mysterious Falcon Travis - an ever-popular title and Peter Usborne's all time favourite!

Usborne Publishing is one of the biggest and most successful children’s publishing houses in the UK, and this year is celebrating 40 years of brilliant Usborne books.

Set up by Peter Usborne in 1973, Usborne Publishing pioneered a completely new generation of entertaining, colourful and friendly non-fiction books, and now publishes almost every type of children's book for every age from baby to young adult.

Since its foundation, Usborne has been the publisher that children themselves love for its humorous, factual and fun books. Usborne books are available around the world, both in English and in over 100 other languages.
