Kids give the best feedback!

Our team consists of volunteer reviewers ranging in ages from 3 to 18 – they take reading and reviewing books seriously!

The preschoolers review the books with their parents. The early readers get assistance from their parents, and the young readers work on their own with some assistance from the parents. The teen/young adults reviewers are on their own, with of course their parent’s support.

Our Featured Books of the Week!

In “Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey” by Alicia Wallace, you read about a caterpillar named Larry who was just born on a green leaf. I liked reading “Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey” because it showed me how you can be strong, and not just with your muscles.
Moxie Wyoming wants a horse on her tenth birthday so she can ride in the rodeo like her mother and grandmother did when they were young. She does get a horse but not the one she hoped for. Instead Moxie Wyoming ends up with an old horse named Misty who falls asleep in the middle of the day! As Moxie and Misty become friends, Moxie learns that Misty has special secrets that make her not such an old regular horse after all!
“This We Pray / Sea of People” by W. Nikola-Lisa is a tiny black and white picture book with a big colorful message.

From Our Clients

“I just received the sweetest review for Polygonsters from a young 5 year old reader named Russ. Just darling. This aspect of the Readers Views Kids services is invaluable. For my genre it is sometimes hard to connect directly with the target reader because it is the parents/adults who are the buyers/decision-makers. For me, professional comments/reviews are great but the comments from the kids are what it’s all about. Also, it doesn’t hurt that my first two books were just as well received with awards!!’

Cindy Helms, Children’s Book Author

“Sheri Hoyte, Reader Views, and Reader Views Kids continue to provide an exceptional and cherished avenue to absolutely genuine analysis and commentary from those that matter most. Her willingness to make a personal connection with authors and readers alike manifests itself in a symposium of literature that can be depended on. As an indie author, it is platforms like these that keep the dream alive. Always be smiling.”

Eric Ray, Author of Mr. Kind Stories

“I have entered the Reader Views Literary Awards Reviewer’s Choice program each year since I discovered the program. The Awards themselves are great for marketing, but the way that this program is especially meaningful is that they use children to review the children’s books. A child reviewer is very unique, since they evaluate the book’s appeal to actual children…the readers!!”

Eve, the Barefoot Librarian provided us with an excellent service. Being first-time authors, it is a challenge to get your foot in the door and we were really pleased with the process. Not only was it a well thought out and wonderful review, but Eve is lovely and very prompt with her communication. Thank you for a job well done.
