Review Policy

Thanks for reading the blog. And thank you for thinking of us! We are happy to consider your book for review.

Before you submit your request, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • We read and critique children’s books, up to age 17-years-old (YA). Although we do occasionally enjoy concept books, story books are preferred. Strong narratives are always a plus.
  • We are currently looking for children’s books that highlight underrepresented groups in the genre (e.g. minorities, LGBTQ, etc.).
  • We are currently scheduling reviews five to six months out.
  • As of August 1, 2022, we no longer publish dramatically negative reviews. There is enough negativity in the world. What does this mean? If we really don’t like the book, we do not publish a review. If we have some minor quibbles, those may make it into the review.

The best way to reach us is through our contact page. Please put “Review Request” and the title of the book in the first line of the body of your message.
