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!

“A Unicorn Named Rin” by Crystal Z. Lee is the story about a unicorn named Rin who is asked by the princess to find the Royal Phoenix, Fan.
Do you believe in monsters? When Daniel’s friends tell him a monster lives in the creek behind his house, Daniel isn’t sure what to think. He wants to learn all about this monster and even though it’s kind of scary, it’s also pretty cool to have a monster living in your backyard!
“I Am Cheetah” is part of a series of books Stephanie J. Teer is launching to educate children aged 5-10 about endangered species. Sprinkled throughout the story and woven seamlessly with the narrative are specific details about cheetahs. Endnotes provide additional facts. The author realistically addresses bullying. This high-interest book is accessible to young readers who want to read chapter books but are not quite ready for the reading level of many chapter books.

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.
