Relevant. Write about the actual book. Don't meander off-topic.
Give details. Go beyond generalities. Focus on the specific aspects of the book that are important to you.
Include "why." Go beyond like or dislike, and share your rationale.
Length. Reviews that actually get read are usually 75 to 500 words long.
Focused. Review only one book per review.
Comparisons. Compare the book to other similar books.
Creativity. Children's literaure is creative. It is fine for your review to be creative too!
Objectionable material. That is, any material that we consider obscene, distasteful, discriminatory, profane, threatening, defamatory, attacking, misleading, spiteful, illegal or immoral.
Promotional material. That is, advertisements, for-hire posts, solicitations, political views, views by a stakeholder of a competing company
Fair use. That is, not quoting too much, not giving away too many details, not spoiling the plot (unless you offer a clear "spoiler alert").
