Reader Views Kids

Reader Views Kids launched at the end of 2007 as part of Reader Views to fill a need of having children’s books reviewed by kids instead of adults. Reader Views Kids consists of a group of kids ranging from 3-18 years of age.

The mission of these bookworms is to read and give their honest opinion on age-appropriate books. Recommended guidelines are followed to make sure their reviews cover the book as a product, however, their voices and opinions are honest and genuine. The younger kids do the reviews with help of their parents, the older ones are seasoned readers in their own right and write their own reviews.

Sheri Hoyte Books

Sheri Hoyte is a writer and emerging picture book author. Reading and writing have been a large part of her life since early childhood. Writing a book of ABC’s as an elementary school project set the course for her future, though it would take decades to realize. As a child, she always had a book in her hand and a pile of books waiting to be read.  Not much has changed.

She worked in the corporate world for over thirty years, honing her business and professional writing skills until 2012, when her passion for stories called her home to Book by Book Publicity working her way up from reviewer to Partner and Managing Editor.

Sheri is working on her own picture books and started an independent blog in early 2019 dedicated to helping Indie picture book authors spread the word about their books.
