Toppsta - Childrens Books – Reviews

Summer Reading 2017



Our mission at is to help children discover a love of reading. We do this by providing an online space where readers can review children’s books and share their recommendations.

Toppsta was launched because as a parent I was struggling to find age-appropriate books and I wanted to know which books children were really enjoying, not just those books that adults thought children should be reading.

The Toppsta Summer Reading 2017 booklet, is a selection of the very best books, hand-picked from more than 10,000 reviews written by you, the amazing Toppsta community and available to read on our website.

You can download the booklet here:

Inside this booklet you’ll find a list of recommendations for each age between 4 and 12 years old, with a short description plus a review from a child, parent, teacher, librarian or grandparent. You’ll also be able to see if the book was “read to” or “read by” the child and there are additional features for Picture Books, Popular Series, New Readers, Reluctant Readers and more.

If you’re looking for even more recommendations, come and check out our website where our book charts are updated daily and helpfully organised by the age of the child. You can also enter our free book giveaways to win a book to review for us, sign up to our weekly newsletter or check out the new reviews published each and every day.

But to continue we need more book reviews! Will you join us? It’s easy and free to sign up. There are no photos, real names or forums and an adult sets up the initial account before adding their ‘children’ (grandchildren or students).

And if you’d like to win a box of 100 books for your school library, add to your school website and let us know! You can find out more details here
