San Francisco & Sacramento Book Reviews Start Monthly Children’s Sections – Publisher’s Weekly – Wendy Werris
Because of the success of their recent Children’s Book Week supplement, previously just an annual event, the San Francisco Book Review and Sacramento Book Review have announced they will regularly include the popular child-reviewed feature every month, beginning with the next issue in June.
The publications attempted children’s reviews before, but it was difficult to round up teachers and children to turn in book reviews. Since their special issue, they’ve decided to try this once more. Instead of receiving reviews from children while they’re in schools, the children’s parents and grandparents will encourage them and help them participate in this project. The response so far is fantastic! The books will feature a child’s opinion and an adult’s opinion – everything will be perfectly balanced.
Get those kids reading!
