We love nothing better than reading a book review from a child. Hearing about why they've enjoyed a book is fascinating and they always make us stop and think about the book again.
The Toppsta community write brilliant book reviews on our website but we also know how keen teachers are to encourage critical thinking in the classroom (or at home!). So here are two book review templates for kids free for you to download and print. You can also encourage children to check out their favourite book on Toppsta to see some book review examples.
The first "My Favourite Book in 5 words" is a perfect KS1 book review template, but it can also be used to encourage book cover creativity in KS2. The second "My Book Review" is probably more appropriate as a KS2 book review template.
Both allow the pupil to colour in the number of the stars they'd give the book (which the kids seem to love!). I've also included a downloadable list of things to think about when writing a book review. They're all A4 size when printed and can be used for fiction or non-fiction book reviews.
