Kids are the best reviewers! Our kids team provides candid opinions about the latest in Children’s, Teens and YA literature


Reader Views Kids is an Austin, Texas, based company. We started in late 2005 as a book review service and called ourselves  Reader Views. Shortly after the company’s birth, we expanded into offering publicity and editing services to authors. At the end of 2006 we decided to create Reader Views Kids and in early 2007 we launched it.

This came as a result of realizing that adults write the kids books, adults decide which kids books are to be published, and then adults end reviewing the books. Something was wrong with this picture!

So, we gathered up a team of kids and here we are. We are now having kids review kid’s books. They are asked to give their honest opinion and we can assure you, they do. Our team of reviewers take reading and reviewing books seriously.


Our team consists of volunteer reviewers ranging in ages from 3 to 18. 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. We are extremely proud of our team.
