Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
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)
Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
With more and more classroom emphasis being placed on a student's ability to write, homework assignments often involve a writing assignment. This is an excellent guide for the beginning writer as well as a reference tool for the older student who is an accomplished writer. Students are often confused about how to begin a report once the reading and research are complete. The authors present a step-by-step process for developing a book report, beginning with suggestions for selecting the book and ending with presenting an oral book report. Instructions tell kids how to get organized, what parts of the book are important, and how to clean up a first draft. Students also receive information about ways to enhance a report, such as contacting the author on-line or using props and costumes for the presentation. Originally published as How To Write Your Best Book Report. 1998 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6 The process of writing book reports is of little concern to most students, who care more about their completion. Perhaps this book should be part of the assignment. It is well organized and explains the whys and hows of writing a book report from chosing the book, through the final draft or an oral report. The style is smooth, spare, and lucid. The chapters are divided into short sections and contain examples of reporting on fiction and nonfiction. It should be helpful to students writing their first formal book report and to experienced students wishing to improve skills, as well as to teachers and librarians providing assistance. A worthwhile companion to the authors' How to Write a Great School Report (Lothrop, 1983). Marguerite Lewis, Glenmont Elementary School, N.Y.
