Book Reviews Made Easy for Children
Reviewing a favorite book helps a child’s reading comprehension. Writing a short review enables your child to express themselves through writing. By helping a child recognize what those elements are and how they can help him or her express opinions, you’ll provide a framework for writing about not only books but also TV programs, movies, plays etc.
If you love to read, at some point you will want to share a book you love with others. You may already do this by talking about books with friends. We have created a simple, eye catching review that your child can complete after finishing a book. The reviews can be posted in your home or shared with friends.

It’s natural for young readers to confuse book reviews with book reports, yet writing a book review is a very different process from writing a book report. Book reports focus on the plot of the book. Frequently, the purpose of book reports is to demonstrate that the books were read, and they are often done for an assignment.
