Hi I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk to you about how to write a book review for primary students. Primary students are another way of saying elementary students and are reading at a level obviously lower than an adult level and it helps to write in shorter more direct sentences for them. If you are writing a review for a book that they might enjoy you want to get straight to the point about what it is they might like about it and write it from the point of view that will really interest a young reader. One component of a book review that might be unfamiliar to kids that is helpful is the ratings system like stars or they have some kind of symbol that will help them see how a book ranks in comparison with other books. So you might develop a system of ratings perhaps using smiling faces or some graphics of thumbs, some graphic way for them to see your rankings of the book. Another thing to think about is to watch a program like "Reading Rainbow". This will really give you some idea about how couples are described for kids in a way that is appealing. So you might look into some of the books that "Reading Rainbow" has recommended and then you might watch an episode related to that book and that will help you to write the review in a very kid focused way. This particular book was featured on "Reading Rainbow" and it is a book that if you go find an episode you will really see specifically how it is reviewed. So write your review in a straightforward way, capture a little bit of what kids look for in a book and by watching "Reading Rainbow" you'll get an idea of some of the things that really appeal to kids and some of the presentations that really help them to understand reviews. So those are some ideas about how to write a book review for primary students.
