Books submitted for review cannot be delivered to a physical address or returned to the author.

Editorial Policy

Reading Time Online reviewers include teachers, teacher librarians, academics, and parents. They are passionate advocates for children’s literature, with their own experiences and knowledge. They are generally writing reviews for adults who purchase books for young readers.

The reviews are often personal, and reviewers sometimes consider the reactions of young family members to the stories. Personal pronouns in the reviews are appropriate and acceptable.

We remain independent and separate from CBCA, and present reviews that are not subject to bias. Furthermore, the reviews published on this site are those of the individual reviewers and are not necessarily those of Reading Time Online or the CBCA.

Advertise your book, service or event on the scrolling banner on Reading Time’s front page for $90 per month.
