About this blog

Does the web really need another book review blog? Possibly not is the honest answer, since there are many absolutely fantastic book blogs catering for the children’s book market. However, my main motivation for writing this blog is to review as many books as possible from the shelves of our school library, as a guide for our pupils. I stick QR codes inside the book covers so that reviews can be scanned on iPads during busy times in the library. If these posts guide anyone else to a book that brings them enjoyment then I will be very happy.

I have always been a bookworm, I thoroughly enjoyed the years when I was able to read bedtime stories to my own children and now I hope to encourage others to discover the marvellous worlds contained within the covers of great books. I think we are lucky to be living in a golden age of  literature aimed at young readers. There seem to be so many fantastically talented writers creating wonderful stories for children on every subject imaginable – I hope my posts  will help you discover your next favourite!
