How to Write Your Best Book Report

Elizabeth James, Author, Roy Doty, Illustrator, Carol Barkin, With Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Books $6 (71p) ISBN 978-0-688-05743-5
The authors of How to Write a Term Paper now concentrate on that bane of school assignments, the book report, discussing their value and detailing steps for drafting and polishing. Their clear, lively hints breed confidence by making conscious processes that children may be using already and by offering practice questions that can be used for most assignments (e.g., ""How does the book make you feel?'') Topics include choosing books; getting help from teachers and librarians; adding a measure of fun to oral reports with costumes and props. Middle-grade students will especially appreciate the directions for correcting common problems (e.g., paragraphs that are too long). (8-12)
