Free Books to Enjoy

LoveReading4Kids is the biggest and best recommendation site for children’s books. Our passion for children’s books ranges from toddlers to teens and ensures that whatever the age, whatever the interest, that you have a steady stream of brilliant book recommendations for your child.

This section of the site brings together a range of wonderful books that have been released by publishers enabling children to read or listen to them for free during this challenging time.

In addition to this, for most of the books there is an expert review and an opening extract so you can try before you buy and get a feel for whether the book will really engage the interest of the child.

We also have tons of book related activities children might be interested in our Kids Zone, including videos and activity pages, and we are regularly creating new content to help encourage a reading for pleasure culture at home and school and develop readers for life.

Further to this 'free books' offering, we have various features in response to the covid-19 crisis including:

Anxiety & Wellbeing - Helping Children Cope

Keeping entertained - activities for the home and garden

Home Schooling Hints & Tips

You'll also find a huge range of interests in our LoveReading4Kids Loves special features and blogs.

And we have recently launched our annual Children’s Poetry Prize with a workshop from award-winning poet Joshua Seigal here. You can enjoy the workshop whatever the age, but if your child is between 7 and 11 they can also enter their poem into the award.

Happy browsing!

Author: Malcolm Duffy Format: Paperback Release Date: 04/10/2018

Nominated for the 2019 Carnegie Medal | Humorous and heartbreaking debut novel with the fresh, funny, honest voice of a 14-year-old Geordie lad recounting the trials and tribulations of family life and finding first love.  Danny's mam has a new boyfriend. Initially, all is good - Callum seems nice enough, and Danny can't deny he's got a cool set up; big house, fast car, massive TV, and Mam seems to really like him. But cracks begin to show, and they're not the sort that can be easily repaired. As Danny witnesses Mam suffer and Callum spiral out of control he goes in search of his dad. The Dad he's never met. Set in Newcastle and Edinburgh, this supremely readable coming-of-age drama tackles domestic violence head on, but finds humour and hope in the most unlikely of- places.

Marvellous for my French English-understanding grandchildren, these books to read.... And even my dyslexic son of 30 will love Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - again! - after homeschooling his son!
