Review Policy & Disclosures

Hi there!  Welcome to the fine print!

As of June 5th, 2014:  I happily accept books for review.  Please email me at thepicturebookreview@gmail.com.  

I accept physical copies only. I understand that this is not cheap — especially if you are a self-published or indie author.  I am grateful that you are willing to take the time and energy to send a physical copy to me to review on my site.

I am not able to participate in blog tours or giveaways, etc.  I wish I could, but it just isn’t possible for me at this time.

Thank you so much for thinking of me.  I’m flattered that you’d like your book reviewed on my site. Also, good luck with your book!  Picture book authors and illustrators are some of the hardest working people I’ve met.  I wish you lots of success!

If you’d like to contact me, please send me an email at: thepicturebookreview@gmail.com.

Where I Obtain the Books I Review:

As of March 2013, I obtain all books reviewed on this blog by either 1) purchasing them or 2) checking them out from the library or 3) from the publisher or author.  I recently added at the end of each review a Where Obtained section.  You can see clearly where I get each book.  The opinions expressed are my own and my son’s.  I do not receive any payment for any of my reviews.

If I have received a book from the author or publisher you will the the FTC disclosure displayed in the post:  I received a review copy from the author.  No other compensation was received.  The opinions expressed here are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Amazon Affliate FTC Disclosures: Some of the links in the posts are “affiliate links.” If you click on the link and purchase the book, I will receive an affiliate commission at no additional cost to you.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Indiebound Affiliate FTC Disclosure:  Some of the links in the posts are affiliate links.  If you click on the link and purchase the book, I will receive an affiliate commission at no additional cost to you.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

I think that’s it for my policies and disclosures. Which are subject to change at any time.

Thank you so much for visiting. I am impressed, grateful, and humbled when people take the time to read what I have to say.

    • Congratulations on your app! That’s very fun and very exciting. I don’t think we’re ready to do app reviews just yet. When my son is a bit older we’ll start looking there and we’d love to check out all you’ve done. Congratulations again! Let me know when you’ve released your app, and I’d be happy to make an announcement about it. From what I’ve seen on your site it looks like a lot of fun. I think a lot of people are going to enjoy it.

  1. As an artist, writer, publisher, and a brand new entrepreneur trying to discover the best way for my passions to support my family and the world, I feel squashed by pressures and demands every single day. Thank you for keeping your site clean and your demands simple. I LOVE that you write your reviews together with your son. I will be sending you an e-mail shortly, and I hope both of you will find my book acceptable for your growing collection. Best wishes to you and your whole family. Mili
