Media Kit: Children’s Book Review Publicity


The Children’s Book Review, named one of the ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children) Great Web Sites for Kids, is a resource devoted to children’s literacy. We publish reviews and articles of the best books for kids of all ages. We are always discovering new and talented authors and illustrators to share with readers. Let us help with your book marketing plan by connecting you with your target audience. The Children’s Book Review receives approximately 250,000 unique visitors annually and is continually growing and gaining popularity with loyal readership.

We accept submissions from publishers, authors, illustrators, and publicists. Submissions are evaluated based on the following particulars: literary value, illustrative quality, and over-all presentation. Our reviews and book lists are always positive because we only appraise those books with the strongest potential impact on the reader. Submit now.

The Children’s Book Review is currently offering five special “Dedicated Reviews” each month. The Dedicated Review program guarantees you a professional and non-biased book review with a minimum word count of 200 words. Apply now.

“The Awareness Tour” was created to provide authors, illustrators and publishers of all kids and teen books an a la carte advertising opportunity from which they can easily and efficiently expand their reach to a targeted audience of children’s book readers by using The Children’s Book Review as a solid platform from which to launch a blog tour/online book tour.

The performance of our marketing campaigns with you have been outstanding. You have an engaging audience and it shows in the number of giveaway entries and social media. A great website!”
