In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students evaluate book reviews written by other children. Next, they discuss the effectiveness of, what components are included in, what they learned from and what they might change about the book reviews. Once students have a foundation for book review components and structure, they write reviews of favorite books and publish them on videotape or online.
