Love Reading 4 Kids have been doing some lovely things with My Brother’s Shadow.
The editorial contributor, Julia Eccleshare (also children’s book editor at the Guardian), wrote a lovely review, calling the book ‘full of tenderness and hope.’
But my favourite thing so far is the reviews they’ve got from some of their members. This is what they said:
Kids love reading and we invited a small number of members and browsers to review My Brother’s Shadow. You can read their reviews below.
Sam Harper, age 10 – ‘This is a very sad and thought provoking book. It isn’t the type of book which I would normally read but I really enjoyed it and the way it made me think about things.’
Mukunth Kowsik, age 12 – ‘A positive story about how love, care and encouragement can transform frozen hearts.’
Aimee Coffman, age 9 – ‘I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It is very different to books I have read before as it deals with a sad topic but in a sensitive way but it has an uplifting ending.’
Benjy Randall, age 10 – ‘A highly enjoyable read with lots of interesting turns. I would highly recommend it.’
Felicity Wilcox, age 10 – ‘A great mixture of feelings put together to make a great book.’
