Book Review Policy

Do you want me to review your book or book subscription box on our site?

I prefer to review books that I could read with my own children (who are currently almost 5, 6 and 8). This means I’d gladly consider requests to receive children picture books, non-fiction books, early readers, short chapter books, and poetry.  No e-book or F&G book requests, please!  I prefer to only receive and review physical hard copies of books.

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee to review every book I receive.  That said, often I will post pictures on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to spread the word about great books I’ve received which don’t make it onto the blog.

Lastly, please bear in mind I review books for pleasure! This means enjoying my family life always comes before book reviews.  If you send me a book for review with a specific deadline then I’m willing to consider it.  Typically, once I’ve received a review copy it takes 3-6 weeks for a review to appear on the blog.

Simply send me an e-mail at: and put Review Request in the subject line.

Please send your book(s) to ATTEN: Teresa Baker; Brown Boy Brown Girl; 251 north Rose Street, Kalamazoo MI 49007.
