Book Report

My Little Buddy was due to write a book report this week.  The example in the book seemed boring to me, so I scoured the web looking for other ideas.  But alas, I ended up making up my own.  So, I thought I would share it with all of you!

The book he read was Secret in the Maple Tree by Matilda Nordtvedt.  It was a charming little book that he and I both enjoyed reading together each day.  I can't wait to see how he fills out his book report on it.  Reading with him has become such a treasured time of the day for me.  And it's the one subject that he never puts off; he's always eager to get started on the next chapter.  We even finished this book a few days early, because I couldn't resist his plea to just read the last 3 chapters all at once.  I love to watch his passion for reading grow!

  1. I love this idea! My first grader has been working a lot on comprehension so I am definitey going to print this out and use it for him.

    1. Rachel,
      I'm so glad that this is helpful to you! I think it's a simple form that could be used for a few years. It will be fun to see how each child progresses in their comprehension and writing skills. So glad to have you following, too! I hope you'll look around and find some other helpful ideas!

  2. Thank you so much! I was looking for something like this for my multi-age homeschool writing class. Your is perfect, thanks for sharing:)
