The Best Books - Book Reviews


 The Best Books - Book Reviews is the section of our site where authors and teachers will review and comment on books for kids and adults. This is a new section, and book reviews are being added frequently, so check back often for our suggestions. We’ll recommend the best books for you and your family.

Do you need book reviews for your children’s book?

If you are an author and would like your books included in The Best Books  section, please contact us. We are currently reviewing Christian stories for kids and adults. We also review other wholesome, fun and healthy books for kids.


Some of the best book reviews aren’t always at the top of the list in Amazon and you might be missing out. Check out The Children’s Book Review for some great reads also.

Book Review Rating System

Our priority is to find books with a valuable message. Our book review rating system is available here.
