‘Book review’

How is your week? Have you been reading to keep yourselves entertained?

 

book review's purpose is to help people decide whether or not the book you have read would interest them enough to read it. Reviews are a sneak peek at a book, not a summary. Reviews can be across lots of different genres: Fiction, Non-fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Mystery, Horror, Sci-Fi etc.

 

Task: Can you write a book review for your classmates, recommending a book you have read recently? Either follow the template provided or write your own from scratch using the features of a book review below.

 

Features of a book review:

  • Title and name of author
  • Your opinion of the book. Whether you like it or not should be clear.
  • Information about the book. Try and tell the reader what happens without revealing too much and spoiling it for them.
  • What did you enjoy the most and why?
  • Why did you not enjoy it? How could it be improved?
  • End with a summary, would you recommend this book?

Extension Task:

  1. Can you imagine the book you have reviewed does not have a cover and redesign a new one?
  2. Why not download the free ‘iMovie’ app that we use in class and create your own trailer for a book you have enjoyed reading?
