If you are a socialite, digitally speaking, and would like us to highlight a trending subject of books for kids of any age, you can send us suggestions on books for infants and toddlers through our Twitter handle, and share your most distinguished books on Instagram or Facebook with #thechildrensbookreview.

If you find a kids book or young adult book that catches your eye, you can buy kids books and ebooks in our Book Shop powered by Amazon. If you prefer shopping with indie booksellers, we also send plenty of inquiries to Indie Bound and Barnes & Noble. If you are one of the lucky people that has a favorite hometown bookstore, you can always place a special order or it might just be on their shelf.
