Top 10 children’s book review blogs written by kids
Categories: Brilliant Blogs

There are tons of blogs around about children’s books, but so far most of them have been written by adults. But now junior bookworms are having their say as children start to blog about the books they love reading.

We think it’s really cool when children blog about the books they read. Blogs like this are a great way to tell the world about a book you’ve enjoyed, or to get ideas for books you might like to read, or just to find other bookworms like you.

And if you’re an adult wanting to find ideas for books for your child to read, book blogs written by children are a great place to look. Not so much from the horse’s mouth as from the bookworm’s eyes.

Here are some of our favourite book review blogs written by children and teens:

  • What Should I Read Next? is a fascinating book review blog for tweens and teens written by 14-year-old bookworm Maya from Wales.
  • What Ruby Read Next – Thirteen year old Ruby addresses the difficult question of what to read when you’re too old for children’s books but too young for adult literature.
  • Flea ReadsThis one is unique because it’s the only video blog on our list. Seven year old bookworm Flea reports on the books she loves and hopes you will too.
  • Childtastic Books – A co-written blog from nine year old Holly and her mum Sam. As well as book reviews, they chew the fat about reading-related issues.
  • The Turtle of HappinessNine year old Mr Turtle is planning to review every book he reads, and has even had a visit from the author of one of his favourite Doctor Who books.
  • SpiderSpider – This talented nine year old boy has a great eye for a funny book, as he reports on reading and other adventures.
  • Bookhi – An inspiring and comprehensive book blog from 14 year old reader Zoe
  • The Teen Book Guru – Incredibly popular Young Adult book review site from 15 year old Riya
  • Mini Bookworms – A collective of parent bloggers and their children who love to read.

And if you want to encourage a young reader today, go visit some of these blogs and leave a comment. You might just pick up some ace reading suggestions as well.

Bloggers – if you are on this list feel free to pick up your Brilliant Blog Badge which is over here on the badge page.

And if you know of any more child book bloggers (or you write one), leave the address in the comments box below and we will include you in a future roundup.

By the way, if you’re a young bookworm who wants their reviews to reach a wider audience, check out The Guardian’s children’s books site where you can join in and get your reviews published.

Happy reading!

Remember, reading is cool! And blogging about reading is a double volume of cool!

    Once you consider a children’s book, global it was just developed in one sitting. The language used have become easy, illustrations are uncomplicated, And also the story is simple. But when you think it is, grown-up who would like to write a children’s book must think and feel being a six-year-old would. Is the fact an easy task to do? If you are somebody that is obviously youthful generation, writing a children’s book might be a fun activity. Check out these five points to writing a children’s book.

  10. Jeff Rivera says:

    I can’t thank you enough Joanne.
    Book reviews written by kids! What a great idea.
    Instead of parents guessing if their children liked the books or not you get the reviews directly from your audience.
    As a children’s books author I think these blogs will be very helpful and you’ve already made an amazing list with the top 10 blogs.

    • Joanne says:

      You can put whatever you like on your own blog. Many bloggers charge for advertising, but if it’s a charity or some other cause you want to support then you might just write about it for free. Good luck!

  13. The Olly Book Blog should be here. Just saying.

  16. Would love to have my book review by children. Anyone interested in reading my book? Winner of two awards, including finalists for International Book of the Year 2012,” Green Kitty is filled with true, earthy, laugh out loud animals stories. It is entertaining but at the same time helps to inform about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

  17. This is fun! We just started book reviews on our blog! It’s called Amisadai and Louisa’s Adventures in Africa!

  30. “Adventures of the Ball Bug Boys” is a fiction written about 8 cousins who are visiting their Meme and Poor Paw. They’re continuously getting into mischief trying to find the mysterious Fangled Tooth Red Fire Farting Dog that roams the countryside. The kids enjoy a time lost by electronics. Plenty of laughs and adventure to entertain the age group between 7-12 years old.

    I couldn’t be more excited about have someone in the same age group the book was written for reviewing my book and giving me insight and pointers.

    Thank you so so so much!

    Hi,
    My name is Phoebe and I’m 9 years old. I recently started (with my dad’s help) a book review blog for kids: http://www.phoebesbookshelf.com. Most of the books I review are probably more for girls than boys. I hope you like it! Thanks.

  34. I have recently published ‘The Little Helmet’ the first adventure of the Hatpeople of Hatland. It would be great to have it reviewed by Young People on their blogs, or to send comments and reviews to my blog. The Kindle version will be free this weekend, Easter weekend 2015, and there’s a free app to download it on smartphones and tablets. Please see the links at http://www.hatpeopleofhatland.com. Many thanks, and good luck with all your blogs.
