How it all works

Are you interested in reviewing books for this blog?

  • Check out the available books here.  Find something you like?
  • Fill in this form to request titles.
  • You can check this spreadsheet to confirm that your request has been received and check its send date.
  • Write your review and then place it in this shared Google folder. For more information on reviews, visit the Online Book Review tab.

Make sure to include your preferred pick-up library.  Books will be sent through library delivery. It is ESSENTIAL that your reviews are written and submitted in a timely manner as publishers only send us the books so that we can provide reviews – and we do;  We forward each review to the publisher as it is published.  So only request the amount you are capable of reviewing within a one month time frame.

Once you get the books, please use the Online Book Review Form to write a synopsis of the plot or content and why you are or are not recommending it.  Make sure you address the illustrations, if there are any.  Remember to include information about identity when discussing characters and artwork: race, ethnicity, gender, disabilities, and sexual orientation.  With picture books and beginning readers, the illustrations are as important as the words.  When you’re done, the books are yours!
