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.

*Note: All reviews are done by our Kids Review Team unless you specifically ask for a review by an adult.

Our Featured Books of the Week!

The story of "Car Show Countdown" is a group of ten classic cars in a competition to win the title. Each vehicle has a short write-up about it but doesn't say "is it fast?" to an outsider. Cars include the Corvette, Jeep, T-Bird, Mustang, and Cadillac as some of the contestants. The story is short and sweet in that each explanation is the type of car, and a sentence containing a mini description, then immediately following, is the announcement.
“A Prophecy of Wings” by Jane McGarry is a contemporary young adult fantasy novel loosely based on the classic fairy-tale Thumbelina by Hans Christian Andersen.
"Winston the Traveling Dog" is a comical story that is appropriate to read at any time. I loved that Lydia learned about landmarks and people from around the world in the story while also reading an enjoyable story. The reading level is right at her level, although she would have trouble with the landmark names. Reading "Winston the Traveling Dog" was enjoyable for both Lydia and me; this story is great for any aged reader.

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.
