Since becoming a reviewer for SLJ, chances are you’ve emailed with a few different staff members—Kent Turner, Ashleigh Williams, me, and perhaps a few others. But who is the person who’s actually editing your reviews?
Good question! It depends on the type of material you’re reviewing.
If you have questions or concerns about your assignment, you should feel free to reach out to your editor at any time. We are here to help!
Luann Toth (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Including board books and beginning readers.
