Hire the best children's book proofreaders


If you’ve written a children’s book, the last thing you’ll want is to share it riddled with accidental typos or mistakes. When your readers are supposed to be swept along in a magical fairytale or fully immersed in an adventurous plot, they shouldn’t be taken out of the story because of poor writing.


If you hire a children’s book proofreader, you won’t need to worry about this happening, as they’ll ensure that your punctuation, grammar, and spelling are all flawless. They’ll check that your commas are where they should be, your characters’ names are spelled consistently, and your writing is allowed to fly off the page and lead readers into a story.


The children’s book proofreaders here at Reedsy have been screened, with only the top 5% of applicants being featured on our marketplace. With years of experience behind them, you can trust that our proofreaders will use their eagle eyes to leave your work shiny and polished. Sign up to Reedsy today to meet them.
