When I first began reviewing books here, I tried to always make sure to include the Bibliophile's reaction to books, even before he could speak.
Lately, I'm trying to involve him even more in expressing opinions about the books we read (rather than just cataloging what I think his reactions are). This week, I thought it might be fun to print up a worksheet that we can go over together when we want to "review" a book. I don't intend to do this whenever he reads a new book - just once in awhile as an exercise.
We read and reviewed How Rocket Learned to Read this week. It was so heartily recommended by Britt at Confessions of a Book Habitue (read her high praise here) that we had to pick up a copy. Here is what the Bibliophile had to say about it:
The Name of This Book Is: How Rocket Learned to Read
The author of this book is: Tad Hills
Who is this book about? A puppy.
What do they do in the book? Sometimes they go to a class.
Did you like this book? Yes.
What did you (or didn't you) like about it? I liked that there was a doggie. I liked THAT doggie [*points*].
We created a simple template (afterall, he's not quite three yet), but I will share it here in case it is useful to anyone else. He only wrote his name at the top, and then I wrote the rest for him while he dictated.
