The Reading With Your Kids Certified Great Read designation has been developed to acknowledge books and products that kids and parents will love to experience together. Placing a Reading With Your Kids Certified Great Read Seal Of Approval on your book or product tells parents, grandparents, educators, and caregivers they are giving their kids the very best.
“The Certified Great Read program has really given me more credibility as an author when I am pitching my book to stores, libraries and even media outlets”

Reading with Your Kid Certified Great Read Status will be given only to those books that would earn our 4 or 5 star reviews.
We will acknowledge your book’s achievement with daily posts / tweets for one week to our 110,000 plus social media followers (That is over 700,000 potential impressions!) We will also create a 60 second animated announcement video that will be featured on our Youtube Channel and social media channels. (You will also receive an mp4 file of the video that you can post on your website, social media and your own video channels) And we will announce your achievement on the Reading With Your Kids Podcast!
Earning our Certified Great Read status will grant you the permission to have our Certified Great Read Seal of Approval Image printed on future printings of your book, and permission to display our Certified Great Read Seal of Approval Image on your website, social media and other web pages. (Did you know that some award programs charge an extra $1500 for this permission!)
Reviews are powerful tools that help drive sales. We will submit our review of your book to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Good Reads and Books-A-Million (Please note, each website has the right to publish or not publish our submitted review)
We will publish our review in a dedicated blog post on our ReadingWithYourKids.com website, and will feature your book on our Certified Great Read Wall Of Fame. We will also read our review of your book on one episode of the Reading With Your Kids Podcast, email our review to our list of over 2000 Kidlit Bloggers and feature the review in one edition of our online newsletter!
Having a News Release celebrating your achievement is great, but who will you be sharing it with? Using the World’s largest database of media outlets, reporters and journalists, we will create a personalized list of 20 media contacts we think would be interested in your story that you can share our news release with.
