The Children’s Book Review is a resource devoted to children’s literacy and we are always discovering new and talented authors and illustrators to share with readers. TCBR’s readers are made up of parents, grandparents, teachers and librarians. We receive approximately 250,000 unique visitors annually and this number is continually growing as we gain popularity with our loyal readership of book lovers.
“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. Just as we’ve built our own loyal readership, we’ve been busy building relationships with like minded bloggers in the children’s book and family friendly realms that are ready to help create buzz for your book(s).

I enjoyed the tour and thought [the] professionalism, dedication and generosity in all matters was superb. My first blog tour and [the] choices considering how to arrange the tour, blog sites, interviews, reviews, guest spots was better than excellent. You have a significant capacity for organizing and managing a blog tour and for accomplishing success for everyone involved.
