Review Policy

We always want to learn about new books and jump at the chance to fill the Reading Tub with books that parents will love to share with their kids … especially undiscovered treasures.  Our goal is to promote reading, so literary quality and audience appeal are very important. Here’s what you need to know.

* People need to be able to hold your book. We place it with a family who will read it with their children or by teachers with students as part of a class initiative. Because of that, we require a copy suitable for review (market, review, or advance reader copy).  We do not accept unbound galleys or electronic files.

* Please register on the Reading Tub web site. This will get you on our newsletter list so you can keep up with what we’re reading … including your book!

* We’re about literacy first. Book reviews help us introduce books, but promoting authors isn’t our primary goal.

* We read every book we receive, but we do not guarantee a review. All of our profiles are done by kids and adults together (either as a family, in a classroom, library, etc.), and their comments influence whether/not we publish a review.
