Kids Can Win Prizes for Blogging Book Reviews!
Kids in grades 3-6 are invited to “blog” their books at lplkidsblog.blogspot.com. Here’s a great way to keep kids reading and practicing writing skills. Each time a child submits a book review, their name will be entered in a prize raffle for the month. Parents are encouraged to read reviews before children submit, and assist with spelling and grammar as needed. Here are some guidelines bloggers should follow when writing a review:
- Start with a hook - a catchy, interesting statement to grab the reader’s attention.
- Follow with a brief summary of the book without giving away the ending.
- End with a recommendation (what type of readers would enjoy this book and why).
- Be creative while using appropriate language, spelling, and grammar.
Please allow 24 hours from the time of submission for book reviews to be posted, as content must be checked for appropriateness prior to posting. For more information contact the children’s room at (401) 333-2422 ext. 15.
