Bookworms' forum

The Kids Review website encourages children aged 7-14 to share their opinions of books they have read with their peers across the country. The site aims to stimulate interest in literacy while furthering knowledge of ICT and the web. There are 150,000 books on the site, and so far more than 10,000 reviews have been added. Children are asked to describe their favourite character and the best and worst bits of the book, while teachers can add information about how they use a book in teaching.

You can search by title, author, series or keyword, and the Top 10 Searches list helps you keep up to date with popular titles. There is also an authors page with links to information about 69 children's writers as well as games to play. There are subscription options, and e-learning credits can be used.
