About This Journal
Established in 1980 as a joint effort of the Department of Teacher Education, the Department of Theatre and Media Arts, and the Harold B. Lee Library of Brigham Young University, the Children’s Book and Play Review (CBPR) was founded to help busy adults select quality reading materials for classroom, library, and home use. It began as a printed journal, then changed to electronic format in 1997. In 2015, the CBPR was changed to the Children’s Book and Media Review (CBMR) in order to meet changed needs in entertainment for children. It now reviews books, plays, movies, TV shows, apps, and websites for young people.
