This super handy resource features a basic book review writing frame template. Great for assessing familiarity with the book, and for encouraging your children to reflect and consider what they've read. Have them rate the book, name their favourite part and get creative by illustrating the scene all on one sheet.
This resource is available in Standard, Editable and 2-Per-Page.
