Kind Words
 I'm a public librarian and I just used your site with a parent whose 11-year old is starting to read teen fiction. I wish I could read everything and know if it's appropriate for younger readers but alas! That's never going to happen so I thought I'd let you know how much I appreciate having your site as a help for myself and for patrons. Thank you! 
RAMARIE BEAVER, YOUTH SERVICES LIBRARIAN
 The functionality of the site and the depth of the Snoops' coverage makes StorySnoops a parents' must-have-tool for guiding young readers. Whether you use it to find the next good book for your child or to help you navigate the "appropriate content" waters of tween reading (without having to dive in yourself), StorySnoops is a great site to bookmark and blog to follow. 
DUSTIE ROBESON, LITERACY BLOGGER AND MOTHER
 I love your website and your blogs. Thank you for filling a void and providing a place to go for book recommendations when I am stuck for gift ideas. Congrats on your start this year and all the best for great success! 
LOREEN HUDDLESTON, MOTHER
 The fact that I can find the level of the book, the age appropriateness and the material that's in it really quickly is really helpful. It's a nice resource for parents and teachers alike. 
LISA COMEAU, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER
 How delighted I have been over recent months to become acquainted with StorySnoops, another resource I can recommend to parents and teachers!  
CAROL RASCO, PRESIDENT & CEO, READING IS FUNDAMENTAL
 I'm loving your blog and all your fantastic posts. 
MARY BREBNER, BOOK SWARM BLOG
 Bravo to StorySnoops for making it so easy to search for books that include topics like Aspergers. I'm so glad authors are writing books with Aspie characters so that people can open their minds and hearts hopefully with compassion for kids dealing with Asperger's and other "non-neurotypical" issues. Thanks for highlighting the topic. 
LINDA PERKEL, MOTHER
 What a resource. As a grandparent it's quite difficult to find the "right" book for the much younger generation. I have five grandchildren, all of whom I encourage to seek new ideas. What better place to do that than in a book? But which book? Story Snoops provides me with an easy yet insightful guide. Their kid's book reviews are a valuable resource for my generation to help connect with that much younger one. Thanks.  
TIM ALLDRIDGE, GRANDPA
 Finding a book by looking at their "suggested reading" lists is my favorite. These incredible search tools are enough to make me passionately love this site. This is not only a great tool for me as a librarian but it's also something that I plan to recommend for use by parents and teachers. I would so totally hug these moms if I could! 
TIFFANY WHITEHEAD, LIBRARIAN
 You have a great website! Using the find-a-book search I found the Bunnicula books, which are just the type of stories my daughter likes. 
TINA, MOTHER
 Trust me when I say this is a very cool and easy to use website! I really admire the work and efforts of the moms at StorySnoops and highly recommend their site! 
CHRIS SINGER, AUTHOR BOOK DADS.COM
 You have developed a valuable resource that is very beneficial to parents who don't have the time to read the entire book before they buy (or borrow) the book for their child/teen. I have put your link on our library's homepage. Thank you for all your hard work reading and putting this website together. 
KATHY GRUMAN, LIBRARY SPECIALIST
 I LOVE StorySnoops!!! I will recommend it to the kids at school and to my daughter who is a reluctant reader (loved that you had a separate listing for these kids) You guys have done a wonderful job  
KATHY CUMMINGS OAKANDER, SCHOOL LIBRARIAN AND MOTHER OF 3
 Story Snoops is a reliable resource that is readily available and user friendly. Having a team of dedicated adults continually reviewing a variety of material for ages 9 - 18 is fantastic! Their reviews are well written and right on target. Story Snoops has a little something for everyone. For the parent looking for the just right book; to the person that loves to give books as gifts; to the teacher looking for new literature to add to their classroom collections, or to add to book club selections; to working in a library and connecting kids to suitable reading material; Story Snoops delivers the scoop! I am thrilled to have Story Snoops at my fingertips and love to share this site with others who share the passion of growing children into lifelong readers.

 If you're looking for good stories with strong minority main characters, go online and ask these nice moms, The Story Snoops, to help you find something. They write VERY BALANCED, THOUGHTFUL REVIEWS. I checked (well, not every single one, of course). 
MEG CABOT, AUTHOR
 As a clinical psychologist who works with parents, I'm often asked to recommend books for kids with particular issues. While I love to talk to book store staff, it's hard to find a salesperson who knows what's on their shelves, let alone what's in the books, especially the information I need to give an informed response to my clients. I want to know what thoughtful people think about the titles I'm considering. I'm recommending this site to my fellow colleagues--kudos to StorySnoops! 
DALE BLUNDEN, PhD, LICENSED PSYCHOLOGIST
 I am so impressed with this website. It is phenomenal, and very user-friendly. It is something I definitely have bookmarked in my browser. 
ANN HUCHINGSON, MOTHER
 I use this site for my son because it is so hard to get him to read. I'm always on the lookout for something to entice him into reading, and with StorySnoops, I always pick a winner. Great site! 
RACHEL SCHEURING, MOTHER
 StorySnoops is a great tool for teachers. I am a second grade teacher, and I don't have time to preview all of the school age books that are currently out there. Now I have all the information I need to choose books for my students...and make suggestions to their parents, too. 
TARA ANDERSON, TEACHER AND MOTHER
 My three daughters, 15, 14 and 12 all LOVE to read and have very different taste in books. I am never really sure where to begin in the book store. I love buying books for them but I hate to see them sitting on the bookshelf unread because the story was not what they were expecting. I will definitely be visiting your site to get input before I head to the bookstore. 
VALERIE ZURN, MOTHER
 You have created a wonderful and much needed resource! 
HEIDI REHBOCK, MOTHER
 What a great site! I wish a children's book review site like StorySnoops had been around when my children were growing up. Luckily it is here for my grandchildren. It will save me so much time and worry about picking the perfect book for each of my grandchildren. I can't wait to share this terrific resource with my friends and family. 
MARTY WOHLWEND, MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER
 I'm thrilled to have the resources of StorySnoops! As a Literacy consultant in my job directing the Children's Library at L. A. City College, I am making recommendations every day for appropriate books of interest for boys and girls from 9-14. I have already used information from the site to answer questions from parents and kids about books they might want to check out (or not), and I have used your information and reviews to assist me in buying new books for the Library. Carry On!
