SLJ reviews new children's and young adult general trade books, original paperbacks, and reference books from established publishers. The reviews are available in our monthly magazine and on-line. In order to be considered for review, books must be of national interest and be readily available from national distributors at an institutional discount. SLJ does not review books for parents or teachers, reissues, textbooks, books that have blanks to be filled in by readers, direct submissions from authors, or books that are self-published. Two copies of the book must be received at least two months before the month of publication. Books received later than that will not be considered. Galleys may be submitted; however, they must be followed by two copies of the finished book. Review coverage is not automatic; many books submitted are not reviewed, mainly due to limited page space.
