Saffron Tree blog is a collection of children's book reviews by a collaborative community of individual contributors who have all come together through their shared love for children's books of all genres and reading levels from board books to young adult novels.
Opinions expressed in the blog posts are entirely that of the contributors. We do not participate in advertising or product endorsement or other commercial partnerships. We do not write reviews for monetary compensation.
We write about books that resonated with us and our kids in the hope that it will resonate with others as well.
While we do not actively solicit review copies, we are open to receiving review copies of children's books on a selective basis for consideration.
We do not guarantee a review on Saffron Tree when we receive a review copy. We would like to clarify upfront that acceptance of a review copy is not a commitment to post a review of the book.
When possible, we combine an author/illustrator interview along with the review of the book.
The themes we lean towards include (but not restricted to):
- cultural diversity
- environment, eco-consciousness
- off-beat, innovative, non-pulp
- folktales and traditional literature
A review copy, when received, is shared with the contributors of this blog. If a review of the book is posted on Saffron Tree, we will be glad to drop an email back with the link.
We promise an honest review always, but not always a positive review. However, since we do not believe in writing negative reviews, if we decide not to review a book, it is possibly because the book didn't resonate with us or elicit a positive review from our contributors.
We accept digital and print ARCs and review copies of picture books, chapter books, middle grade and YA.
