Reinberger Reviewers: A Kids Book Review Series

This series was launched by the RCLC at Kent State University School of Information. It features videos of children reviewing their favorite reads, or highly rated children’s books of their choosing.

These unscripted and fun-filled videos will be a great way to celebrate the joy of reading. We will hear directly from children about why they love certain books and what these stories mean to them. This project will also be an excellent way to partner with libraries, nonprofits, and other organizations in our community.
