Website Adds New Comments Feature
Online PR News – 09-August-2010 – – 8.9.2010 – (Los Gatos, CA) – StorySnoops.com is enhancing its service to meet the needs of its users by adding a new Comments feature. The innovative site provides children's book reviews from a parent's perspective, with easy-to-use search tools that guide parents to fiction that reflects the unique interests and experiences of their tweens and teens. Those who already have a book in mind can quickly look it up to learn more about its content and make informed selections. Now, parents and children are invited to comment and share their thoughts about more than seven hundred fifty books on the site.
The new Comments feature will supplement information already provided for each book: The Story -- a plot summary, and The Scoop -- a brief recap of the content. Each book review is written by one of the company's four founders, who have collectively read all of the children's books on the site. A list of Content Keywords accompanies each book review to ensure that parents get the gist of significant subject matter. Relevant details are also presented, including genre, awards, publisher's recommended age, main character gender, and series information.
"We believe that our new Comments feature will further our goals of facilitating informed discussions and helping parents make book selections based on their individual child's specific needs. We encourage comments from users of our site to further supplement our book reviews so that other parents can create the most successful reading experience for their own children," said the website's Co-Founder, Eden Manseau.
