REVIEW POLICY

We look for English-language children’s picture books from different countries. Our aim is to increase visibility and awareness of the wealth of stories and talents from around the world, beyond the dominant English-language children’s picture book publishing markets of the United States and the United Kingdom.

INDEPENDENCE

ChildrensPictureBookReview.com is an independent review site that is not associated with any publishers, printers, agents, distributors, fairs, festivals, societies, associations, stores, prizes, awards, editors, authors, or illustrators. We do not receive any compensation for our reviews, either financially or in kind. Additionally, the site and our work is not sponsored or supported either in cash or in kind by any third party.

REPRESENTATION, INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, SUSTAINABILITY

We also aim to highlight: 1) Minority representation and inclusion, 2) Diversity, including in gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, physical abilities and religious beliefs, 3) Environmental friendliness. We tag publications as “eco-friendly” if they disclose that they use eco-friendly printing and/or recycled paper or paper sourced from responsible sources.

SELECTION

We purchase all books we review from brick-and-mortar and online stores. We also borrow books from public libraries. We review books that interest us and that catch our eye.

You may send us books but we reserve the right to not review them. If you wish to send us physical copies of books, please contact us for our mailing address.

DID OUR REVIEW INFLUENCE YOUR PURCHASE OR BORROWING?

If any of our reviews led you to purchase or borrow the book(s) we’ve covered, we’d love to know what prompted you to reach out for the title. Leave us feedback via our CONTACT page or in the  comments section of the book in question.
