Book Review Policy

Do you want your book featured on Lu and Bean Read?

At Lu and Bean Read, we are all about sharing fun books with our audience of kids, families, teachers, librarians, and other children’s book lovers.

We typically feature traditionally published picture books, chapter books and middle grade books that our family loves. We feature self-published books only occasionally. Once per month we share books for adults, including both fiction and nonfiction. We share books on the blog, on our podcast, and on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

We do our best to share as many books as possible. Our first priority is to share books we love and those that are in heavy rotation with our family. We cannot guarantee that every book we receive will be shared on the blog, podcast or on social media. Please note that we will only review books if we receive a hard copy sent to:

Lu and Bean Read
P.O. Box 19521
Minneapolis, MN  55419

If you would like to know if your book is a good fit before sending a hard copy, send an e-mail to and add Book Review Request in the subject line. In the email, please tell us about your book, the publisher, when it will be released, timeframe you would like the book to be reviewed, if giveaway copies are available, and if you would like to be considered for the podcast.

We look forward to hearing from you!
