Our Review Policy
We enjoy reviewing children’s, middle grade, and young adult books and will accept books from authors and publishers. Our focus is how the books can be used in the classroom, so we kindly ask that you only submit your book if you think it can be used by teachers. We don’t include spoilers, but we may include warnings if a book is not appropriate for a certain age group. We reserve the right to edit any of our reviews at any time. This blog is all about how texts can be used in classrooms. For example, please refrain from sending very religious or particularly naughty texts. We accept any genre and welcome hardcovers, paperbacks, ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies), and e-books.
We will always look for the positive in a book. If we do not feel the book meets our mission, to be a resourceful blog for teachers to find texts to use in their classrooms, we will not post a review of the book. You will be contacted if that is the case. We will not receive monetary compensation for reviews. The reviews of this blog are solely our own, and we will always work to provide a positive, honest review of your book.
We promise to try to review your book in a timely manner. We cannot agree to review within a certain time-frame, though we will attempt to follow a time-frame or specific date if one is requested.
Author Interviews, Guest Posts,
and Blog Tours
We would love to consider your author interview, guest post, or blog tour if we feel the book is appropriate for our blog. Please contact us for more information.
Please contact us if you would like to send a book to review at unleashingreaders(at)gmail(dot)com. We check our emails daily and usually respond within approximately 72 hours. If you are interested in posting any of our reviews or content to your website, please contact us.
