CYA Podcast Book Review Policy

The CYA Book Review Podcast is by and for librarians who serve children and young adults. We select the books we read and provide in-depth reviews for librarians who purchase books and recommend them to youth. We adhere to the Library Bill of Rights http://www.ala.org/ala/issuesadvocacy/intfreedom/librarybill/index.cfm, the Freedom to Read Statement http://www.ala.org/advocacy/intfreedom/statementspols/freedomreadstatement, Raganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_laws_of_library_science and the Reader’s Bill of Rights by Book Chat Central.

We review all book genres and formats for youth from birth to age 18, including fiction, non-fiction and graphic novels. We review books of the current year and two years older.

We review books by small presses.

    I recently started a children’s book series called the Treehouse Adventures of Nate Nate and Maxie Dog. This series is on a 3-5th grade reading level but has illustrations for smaller children, if the parents would like to read to them. I am reaching out to you to see if you would be interested in doing a book review. Please let me know your thoughts. Below is the Amazon link for you to take a look at the book. Let me know the best way for me to send you a copy and I will send it your way. Thank you again:
