Review Policy & Disclosures

Hi there!  Welcome to the fine print!

As of March 30th 2014: I had a baby a little while ago and am just getting back into blogging.  I’m a bit behind on my reviews — so if you have contacted me and haven’t heard back from me, I’m still in the process of replying.  I apologize for the delay.

As of October 1st, 2013:  I happily accept books for review.  Please email me at thepicturebookreview@gmail.com.  

A few things you should know:  No screens for my son yet (really, none), so I only read paper copies to him.  Please feel free to send me an email attachment of your book (or a link or something like that) so that I may preview it.  If it looks like something my three-year-old son would like/is ready for then I will ask for you to send me a paper copy so that I may read it to him.  I will do my best to respond to every email that I receive, but it isn’t always possible.  I appreciate your understanding.

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!

Contact Me:

If you’d like to send me an email:  thepicturebookreview@gmail.com is the best way to reach me.

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.”

About Pictures on this site:

I use pictures from Amazon and/or pictures I have taken myself.

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.
