With as many as 80K hits every month, and a hugely book-loving audience comprising parents, grandparents, authors, illustrators, publishers, distributors, children's book industry gatekeepers, bookstores and kids themselves, KBR is the place to be seen.
We are a respected part of the children's book industry, particularly in Australia and our reviews and site have a consistently high rating in Google rankings.
We are a reliable source of great reviews from experienced industry players and we also provide fantastic resources for creators, who frequent the site, along with their publishers, editors and distributors. We are thrilled to say that many bookstores are now relying on KBR for guidance on their book stock.
Not only that, we have an extremely active Facebook page (3387 likers) and Twitter account (2650 followers) and each of our team members is extremely proactive in the industry. We have dozens upon dozens of friends and supporters who feature our logo on their sites. We also feature regularly in Pass it On and Buzz Words industry e-zines.

All ads and links must be approved by us and must be children's book-related. We do not take ads for apps.
Our new Book Buzz section features in the right-hand side column of the website. You can have a book cover here with a direct link to the book for just AU$80 a month. That is phenomenal value for the exposure it will receive. Please note this is for a book cover ONLY.
Anyone - publishers, bookstores, publicists and authors or illustrators themselves - can take out this ad and there is no monthly minimum. It is payable in advance and runs by calendar month, from the 1st of each month. We regret we can't run book covers part way through the month. February and 30-day months will kick over into the next month to make up 31 days in total.
Business Logo or Ad
For online and bricks + mortar businesses or publishers, we offer a side column ad with a direct link to your site for AU$180 a month, three months minimum and payable in advance. This runs for three calendar months and is renewable in blocks of three months from then on in.
The ad can be a business logo or a specific ad created by you (and approved by us).
We also offer ads to promote your book launch, tour or other event. These are also a sidebar ad and so are best almost square. These are AU$50 for a one-off event and can run up to three weeks in advance of the event. They will be removed once the event is over.
