How We Pick Books

Each week, we Cottagers take turns picking our favorite books from the The Little Crooked Bookshelf in our library. In the Cottage, it's more about celebrating books than reviewing them, so our picks-of-the-week are simply books we come across that we love.

We focus on highlighting traditionally published picture books, early readers, chapter books and middle grade titles that our readers can easily find in libraries and brick-and-mortar bookshops throughout the world. If you are a publisher and would like to send us a review copy of a book, please contact us at, and we will send you the mailing address of The Little Crooked Cottage. 

Please note that we provide honest reviews/ reading recommendations and sending a review copy does not guarantee we will feature a title on the blog.

Finally, due to shipping costs, giveaways are limited to the U.S. only.

Thanks for reading, and for your interest in The Little Crooked Cottage!

Best wishes,
The Little Crooked Cottagers
