What is Kid Lit Exchange?

Kid Lit Exchange is a movement started by Kate Olson with the goal of getting review copies of children’s books into the hands of more willing and able reviewers. In August, 2018, Kate stepped back from Kid Lit Exchange to enable her to devote more time to her family, career and projects. KLE is now being led by a leadership team comprised of ten members of the original Kid Lit Exchange.

We so often hear that reviews are what make or break books, especially by debut authors, so why not work together to spread the word? As reviewers, we love to read books before they are released, and this group eliminates the need for publishers and authors to send galleys to multiple people – send us ONE galley (or recently published title), and we will just keep passing it on for review!

Books are posted on the @kidlitexchange Instagram account for reviewers to request and all reviews will be posted by reviewers on Instagram using #kidlitexchange – head on over and take a look!

The premise is simple: each reviewer reads a galley, writes a review of 100+ words, posts that review on MULTIPLE sites including, but not limited to:

  • Amazon (upon publication)
  • Goodreads
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • Personal blog

And then mails it to the next reviewer!
