BE THE STAR YOU ARE!
Be the Star You Are!® is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to empowering families and youth at risk through literacy and positive media.
By emphasizing reading as a core skill, Be the Star You Are® is helping these kids understand the limitless opportunities available to them. The distribution of library books and other material empower youth-at-risk to improve their daily lives, giving them a head start so they can beat the odds. Their motto is "To be a leader, you must be a reader."
The Be the Star You Are® Teen Review Team write the Reading Tub® profiles for books targeted to a reading audience that is ten years old and up. The Review Team Stars are kids ten to thirteen years old, and the team also include several young adult and adult reviewers. Read the book summary, kid’s reaction, and recommendations for each of the books they've read.
The media in all its forms heavily targets this audience, and we are most pleased to have reviewers who can give us an honest perspective of what’s being marketed to them.
All Be the Star You Are!® profiles will have a Be the Star You Are! imprimatur on it.
