Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a well laid out plan for a reading project. Students are guided in a book report of sorts, including how to choose a book, how to create a cover page, how to do author research, how to plan for and keep a reading log, vocabulary development, how to create a character page, how to describe the setting, how to write a review, and how to create a quiz. In the character development section, students are asked to choose a creative way to describe a character: create a letter of application or job resume for the main character or write a conclusion to the story 20 years into the future or create a magazine interview for the character or write the character’s eulogy.
