Reading for pleasure KS1 book review worksheets

A book review is a great way for children to learn to communicate their thoughts and ideas about books they read. Use these ‘My Favourite Book’ review worksheets to encourage children to talk about and recommend their favourite book to others.

With this adaptable resource you can choose how many worksheets you use. Use only the first page to create a brief overview of a book, or look at character descriptions and develop pupils’ higher-order thinking.

Why not keep the book reviews in your classroom reading corner or library to help children choose a book based on their peers’ recommendations?

This resource was produced by Eden Learning Spaces in partnership with Seven Stories National Centre for Children’s Books.
