Informative, candid and trusted; book reviews by our own book experts are unique to LoveReading4Kids. But we also want to know what the kids think too! The LoveReading4Kids Reader Review Panel is made up of passionate and prolific readers keen to share thier views and recommendations. All the titles in this category have not only been selected and reviewed by our editorial experts but they have also been reviewed by our kids reader review panel, a panel of book lovers across the UK.

"Ed loves reviewing the books and it definitely encourages his reading, both solo and with me (which I love)." Tracey Parker (parent)

"Daniel has seen his review on the website for The Dark – he is so excited!"  Cat Bisland (parent)

Since its inception, LoveReading4Kids and its sister site LoveReading have taken a different approach to book reviews, relying uniquely on the selection and review of books by editorial experts. On LoveReading4Kids one of our expert reviewers is Julia Eccleshare (who is also the Children's Books Editor at The Guardian) and she knows what makes a good read whatever the genre and actually reads the books before telling you what she thinks - radical we know, but sometimes old-fashioned ways are the best.

In 2012 however, to complement our expert reviews we decided to invite children of LoveReading4Kids members to join the newly created Kids Reader Review Panel.

We've now attracted over 500 children aged from 4 right up to late teen and 100's of books have now been read and reviewed by them. Many of them even have their own book blogs and help us to spread the word of mouth still further on a book they've enjoyed.

Panel members reviews are loaded onto the site and complement those of our own Lovereading editorial experts. We're even now receiving feedback from visitors to LoveReading4Kids that the 'Kids Reader Review Panel' reviews are as valued as those of our own LoveReading book experts! With that in mind, we thought it would be very helpful to everyone if we created a category and put all the books that have also been reviewed by some of our Kids Reader Review Panel members, in one easy to find place.

Here are a few testimonials from parents, teachers and importantly direct from some of our 'Kids Reader Review Panel'

The whole class are desperate to get copies of your books and are disappointed if their name doesn't come out of the hat. The more books the better!  I've gone from having a class of boys who won't read to a class who get upset if they don't get chosen to read. It's brilliant!  Jane Edwards, Little Sutton Primary School, Ellesmere Port (Teacher)

I just wanted to say thanks for the opportunity to do this for your site. Ed loves reviewing the books and it definitely encourages his reading, both solo and with me (which I love).  Tracey Parker (parent)

Daniel has seen his review on the website for The Dark – he is bringing it into school for Show and Tell on Friday – he is so excited!  Cat Bisland (parent)

Just wanted to say thanks so much for uploading Cara's book review - she had the biggest smile ever when I showed it to her! It will have given her and her family a real boost. Great site too!  Jill Rooney (parent)

Thanks for giving up the opportunity to review books for your website, this is proving really popular with our pupils and books are literally flying off my desk at the moment! It’s also great to see the reviews that the kids have written online  Amy Bennett, Thomas Cowley School, Lincs (teacher)

The book reviewing has been a real treat for us, thank you for a wonderful experience. Tracey Upchurch (parent)
