Can Kids Review Books?
Of course! We encourage kids to be confident readers and writers. By publishing their very own book review on our website it gives them a sense of accomplishment that their work can be seen online for others to see. This encourages kids to want to read books and write reviews. Writing a review helps kids with critical thinking and promotes a better understanding of a book they just read. Lots of kids can read. But when they have to think and write about the book afterward, it really develops a better understanding and strengthens reading comprehension.
Where Can Students Post Book Reviews?
If you have a student or child that you would like to share their book review on our website, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can post your child’s book review to one of our blogs where they will have their own URL that they can share with others.

Why Should My Kid Submit a Book Review?
Publishing online is a powerful motivator for children. Students and children feel more motivated to write when they know their thoughts and opinions will be seen by their peers. We want children to feel confident in their reading and writing skills. We want them to get lost in a book and use their imagination to the fullest. Having strong reading comprehension skills is essential to developing a life-long love for reading. When kids are engaged in reading it makes it more enjoyable, boosts their self-confidence, and helps them become better readers. Reading confidence and comprehension are essential for developing a love for reading and help kids succeed in school and beyond. It’s a proven fact, kids who are better readers, do better in school.
