Writing book reviews

To write a book review you must first read the book carefully and then look at it critically. Observe upon what you gained by reading the book. Could the book have been written differently? Has the author missed some key points? This will naturally develop your reading level. And who knows, there could be a budding writer in you. Writing a book review will polish your writing skills, too.
So, it is a good idea to write, even if the librarian has not asked you to. Keep a record of all the books you have read. Later when you look at your list you will at once recall the things you read, which otherwise might not come to you.

For the school purpose, let your book review be simple. You could follow the pattern below.

1. Name of the book:
2. Author(s):
3. Publisher and price:
4. No. of pages in the book:
5. No. of days taken to read the book:
6. A short summary of the book (in 2 or 3 paragraphs):
7. Did you like the book? Why/why not?

Add your name below and also the date.

That’s all, your book review is now ready for submission.

Book Highlight



Told in diary form by an irresistible heroine, this playful and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the May Bird trilogy sparkles with science, myth, magic, and the strange beauty of the everyday marvels we sometimes forget to notice.

Spirited, restless Gracie Lockwood has lived in Cliffden, Maine, her whole life. She’s a typical girl in an atypical world: one where sasquatches helped to win the Civil War, where dragons glide over Route 1 on their way south for the winter (sometimes burning down a T.J. Maxx or an Applebee’s along the way), where giants hide in caves near LA and mermaids hunt along the beaches, and where Dark Clouds come for people when they die.

To Gracie it’s all pretty ho-hum…until a Cloud comes looking for her little brother Sam, turning her small-town life upside down. Determined to protect Sam against all odds, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: The Extraordinary World. It’s rumored to lie at the ends of the earth, and no one has ever made it there and lived to tell the tale. To reach it, the Lockwoods will have to learn to believe in each other—and to trust that the world holds more possibilities than they’ve ever imagined.
