After you read below, I am available for mail at: missusbreviews@gmail.com

Many of the books I share come from my personal book shelves at home or work. Others I've borrowed or requested from my county library. If a friend or colleague recommends a picture book, the first place I'll check is my library. I'm a regular- they know me well there.

Recently I've received review requests from publishers & authors and if you'd like me to consider a book, please contact me at

While I've accepted some digital versions for review up until recently, I am now only accepting print versions by post.* I feel I can better experience the colours and image details when I've got the real thing in my hand. Also, I like to include my own photographs and sometimes a video review- I think that one or both will  give readers a more realistic impression of a picture book.

If you are feeling a bit dubious about sending print/ARCs to a random stranger, please email me. If you'd like to send an initial digital, I will happily check it out & see if your book fits with my blog. After this, we can carry on/ roll with it.

I aim for my reviews to be honest and polite. If I receive a book that I am not interested in, dislike, or one that I would not recommend-  I just won't review it. I would rather not post at all, than have a negative blog post. Just because I don't like a book, doesn't mean others will feel the same. 

I won't review books that promote one type of religious belief, but I am happy to share books that promote diversity/ acceptance, or ones that inform children about various religious beliefs.

When I complete a review, I often post it under my facebook, google+, Amazon and Goodreads profiles. Sometimes I tweet- but I am just getting used to the whole twitter business. Video reviews will display in my blog posts and on my You Tube channel. Sometimes I include short video reviews by children.

*Hard copies will be donated to charity, used as a resource tool within my workplace or   released into the wild.....I'll 'book-it-forward' and surprise someone at a bus stop or park bench (only in dry weather of course.)

If I personally connect with a book, I may decide to share it with my family, friends, nieces/nephews before doing the above. In this case, your book will be lovingly stored and shared for an unspecified time-frame.
