We are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing Children’s books. There are so many fantastic new books coming out each year but sometimes, when faced with so much choice, it’s difficult to know where to start. Every child is unique in their interests, reading level and access to books, so how do you find out which books will be devoured and which will remain forever unfinished? We’re all busy and sometimes there just isn’t time to research, read and ask for recommendations as much as we’d like to.
Toppsta aims to solve this problem for children, teens and young adults. Whether you’re a busy parent, a generous grandparent, teacher or librarian, we want to become THE place where readers recommend the very best books to each other. Every book review on Toppsta.com is helping children, parents, grandparents, librarians and booksellers, discover the very best books for children. It doesn’t matter if you loved the book or hated it, we just want your honest opinion!
Launched by Georgina Atwell in Autumn 2014, as a Mum to two young children, she realised just how hard it was to find books that were age and reading-level appropriate. Determined to provide other parents and children with an easier way to find great books, Toppsta.com was launched from the kitchen table.
After launching initially on Facebook and getting such a phenomenal response from our fans, we knew we were onto to something special. This website is powered by bookworms! So a big thank you to the children, parents, teachers, librarians and grandparents who submit reviews each and every day. This is your community and we love reading your reviews.
The giveaways help readers discover new books and new authors and illustrators. We work with many UK publishers to help connect their books with readers and pride ourselves on hand-picking reviewers for each and every book. Our giveaways are intended for children, though anyone is welcome to review other books on the website.
We are a very small team and chances are, we’re making breakfast, on the school run, have our nose in a book or are cheering from the side of a football pitch but if you have any questions you can email us [email protected].
