So, you have read an interesting book. Maybe you even wrote a review for the Kids Corner*. Why stop there? We’d love to see you publish that same review right on the Amazon.com website, and you may be amazed at how easy it is to do that!

Here’s a guide to help you post your review on Amazon.com.

Why is it important to publish your review on Amazon.com?

By writing a review for the Kids Corner you got a start at developing your own voice and making your voice heard among other readers. If you liked the book, you’ve helped other readers find it, and helped the author connect with new readers. But why limit yourself?

By posting the same review on Amazon.com, you may be able to reach hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people of all ages who visit Amazon looking for good reading choices. Chances are also very good that the author will read your review, so you’ll be part of a conversation that may help the author make her next book even better! Your opinion is important, so you let the readers and author alike know what you liked and what you didn’t like. Let the readers know the type of book they may want to read or not read according to your review. You are able to create a direct line of communication between yourself, the author and other readers.

Instructions on how to write a review on Amazon

  1. Go to http://www.Amazon.com.
  2. Log into an Amazon Account. If you do not have an Amazon Account, please check with your parents/caretakers/school to log into their account.
  3. Locate the book you want to review in the Amazon “Search Bar” in “Kindle Store,” by typing the book’s title and/or author.
  4. Find the book you want to review in the Results Screen. You may have to scroll down to find the correct book.
  5. Click on the book you want to review. This should you bring you to the book’s main Amazon page.
  6. Scroll down the screen to the Customer Reviews Section
  7. Click on the “Create a Review” Tab.
  8. Follow the instructions from Amazon.
    • Rate the item.
    • Enter a title for your review — something that sums up your review in a few words
    • Select a review type (“written” in most cases).
    • Write your review! If you wrote the review originally for Kids Corner, let others know by writing “This review was first posted on Kids Corner @ Kindle Nation Daily.”
    • Press the “Preview Your Review” Tab
    • Proofread your review. Is there proper grammar? Capitalization? Punctuation? Did you say everything you wanted to say about the book? You may want to ask a friend, parent, or teacher to help your proofread — another set of eyes can’t hurt!
    • Either press the “Edit” tab to fix any mistakes or if complete, then press the “Publish” tab.
  9. Within 24 hours, you will receive an email from Amazon stating whether the review has been approved or not and when you may take a peek at your newly published review!

That’s it. It’s that simple. Happy Reading, and Happy Reviewing too!
