Write a book review

Girl on couch reading

Read a really good book recently? Or maybe a book which has transported you to a different world?

A review helps shape your ideas and share your opinion on a book.

You will need:

  • A copy of your chosen book
  • Pen/pencils
  • Coloured pens or pencils

Our book review resource asks children lots of questions such as their favourite moment and how many stars they might give the book. When they're finished, why not ask them to share their review with a friend or family member? They might discover a story they’ll love!
