BYU Review of Children’s Books—Helpful Resource

The Brigham Young University Children’s Book Review, published by the university’s Department of Elementary Education, is as a valuable resource for anyone interested in learning about recently published children’s books, particularly teachers, librarians, and parents.

Printed nine times annually, monthly from September through May, the book review provides readers an opportunity to introduce themselves to a wider variety of books on numerous subjects. The reviewers are mainly teachers and librarians representing all levels of education from the primary grades through college. Evaluations are based on personal opinions and are not policy statements of, or endorsements by, the Church or BYU.

The review, which includes reviews of children’s plays as well as books, offers evaluations of subject and theme; text and illustrations; style; attitudes; and age for which each publication has been written. The overall quality is indicated by a rating symbol placed next to the approximate grade level given for each publication listed. If a book is thought to appeal to a wide age range, no upper limit is given.

All publication information is provided for each publication listed in the review (publisher, date of publication, international standard book number and Library of Congress number, number of pages, and cost).

Subscription rate for The Brigham Young University Children’s Book Review is $6.00 annually. All requests and other correspondence should be addressed to: Brigham Young University Children’s Book Review, Department of Elementary Education, 243 McKay Building, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT 84602.
