How do I use the search filters on the homepage?

We have created search filters to help make your title selection as easy as possible and to ensure you find the most appropriate books for your child. For example, if you have a six year old who loves pirates and you don't want to spend more than $20, simply search by Age (6), Theme (Pirates) and Price ($10-$20). We offer additional Gender filtering if necessary. Additionally, if our search tool returns the message 'No items found' or you'd simply like to start your searching again, try clicking on our logo, at the top of the page to reset your session with our little site. This is especially useful with Categories etc..

Hint: make sure you give each filter a second or so to do it's searching before clicking on the next filter!
