About

Story Links is a children’s book review site which was established through Write Links and is supported by Book Links.

Story Links reviews children’s literature for 0 to 100 year olds, including picture books, junior fiction, information books, and YA books.

We believe that children’s literature plays an important part in shaping culture, expanding knowledge, increasing empathy and empowering children and we will review children’s books accordingly.  We aim to be champions for children’s literature, children’s authors and illustrators and hope to inspire children, families, librarians, teachers and anyone else to value story and this art form.
