Reviews and Disclosures

Children’s Lit Love Review Policy

The purpose of this site is to help parents and teachers find the best books for the children in their lives. At this time, I mainly focus on picture books, early chapter books, and family chapter book read alouds. From time to time, I’ll also feature some middle elementary reviews straight from the mouths of my girls or some parenting/literacy books that have personally impacted me as a parent.

If I receive a book from an author, publisher, or publicist, I will note so in my post. I certainly don’t love, and therefore post about, every book that I receive. Above all, I want you to know that we truly love the books that you see on this website, so that you can trust our recommendations. If we are gifted a book that doesn’t resonate with us for one reason or another, I won’t recommend it.

If you are interested in sending me a book to review, please contact me at

Children’s Lit Love Affiliate Disclosures

In my posts, you’ll often see links through which you can purchase books. My page is affiliated with Amazon, Bookshop, and IndieBound. These relationships mean that I receive a very small compensation for books that are purchased through the links in my posts. Linking to the books in no way increases the cost of the items should you choose to buy them.  All of my reviews are my honest opinions and are in no way shaped by linking to these retailers.

At times, I will also promote other book and literature companies with which I have developed a monetary relationship. These relationships will always be clearly stated in the respective posts.
