Because of the overwhelming (and quite honestly, surprising!) response to our Children’s Book Week project for our May issue, we’ve decided to launch a brand-new insert into our existing San Francisco Book Review and Sacramento Book Review publications.
About Kids’ Book Review
Starting with our June 2012 issue, Kids’ Book Review (KBR) will be a monthly insert going inside our regular publications and will be written entirely by children (from the little guys to high school age). We will also run our regular Children’s, Tweens, and Young Adult sections that will be written by our adult reviewers.
As I mentioned, the Children’s Book Week program has drawn unprecedented participation since we first ran the program three years ago. We have 157 reviews being written by the kids for our May issue! And the kids are just so adorable with their books (we’re including their photo alongside their review in the publication).
A Sampling of the Kids
If you’re a Children’s, Tweens or Young Adult publisher, just keep doing what you’ve been doing — which is sending us your books. We’ll be sure to provide you with a good mixture of adult vs. young reviewers for them.
We will also be linking the kids’ reviews with our Kids’ Book App, which has more than 5,000 users.
