Reviewing children’s books and YA in translation

One fabulous way to get involved in #WorldKidLitMonth is to read and review a children’s book in translation into English! Grown-ups and kids, your reviews can really help raise the profile of books from other countries and help curious readers find books from afar.

Your review can be super short: just a photo and a few words on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, a longer review for your blog or school newsletter, or a guest review for World Kid Lit blog ~ we welcome reviews by readers of all ages, either written for the blog or video reviews for the YouTube channel.

If any children or teens would like help with writing a book review, there are some tips and templates below.

Primary / elementary school / up to 10 years of age

Secondary / high school / ages 10+
