Synopsis

Survival Skills by Simon Ellar

Amaze your friends (and annoy your enemies) with your expert knowledge of a massive range of subjects! Instant Expert takes the hottest topics for ages 12+ and turns readers from novices into knowledge-gurus. Jam-packed with information, each book offers practical, hands-on advice from insiders - people who know the subject best. Want to know how to stop your bike's brakes squealing? The best compound wheels to use for ramp skating? Or how to defend yourself if you are attacked? Instant Expert guides will show you how. Illustrated with a combination of high-impact images and step-by-step photos, these books are designed as a resource that readers will be able to return to again and again, as well as being useful for a single hit of knowledge. Exciting online video links are also provided to carefully demonstrate techniques, enabling readers to watch an expert and see how it's done.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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

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

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

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

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

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

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
