We love reading!

Here are some thoughts and question ideas I thought I'd share to help continue developing the children's love of reading...

I met a dragon face to face

I met a dragon face to face

The year when I was ten,

I took a trip to outer space,

I braved a pirate's den,

I wrestled with a wicked troll,

And fought a great white shark,

I trailed a rabbit down a hole,

I hunted for a snark.

I stowed aboard a submarine,

I opened magic doors,

I travelled in a time machine,

And searched for dinosaurs,

I climbed atop a giant's head,

I found a pot of gold,

I did this all in books I read

When I was ten years old

Questions you could ask when your child finishes a book, or part of a book...

 

  • Did the book they just read surprise them? Why did they choose it? Did they expect to like or not like it because of the blurb or dust jacket?

 

  • Did the characters seem real? Did they feel sympathy for the characters? Do they know anyone like the character?

 

  • Did the book take them to new places? Were they real places or imaginary lands? Did they learn anything about the setting from reading the book?

 

  • Did the author know about the background or topic of the book? Were there any mistakes?

 

  • Did they want to go on reading more after the book had ended? 

Book Reviews...

Book reviews are a great tool for helping you find new books to read, as well as share your thoughts on a book (which may help someone else).

 

Toppsta (https://toppsta.com/) is a great website where you can browse books by age group, title, author, illustrator or series, as well as leave reviews for other people to read.

 

CBBC Book Club (https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/shows/cbbc-book-club) is another great place where children can read and share book reviews, as well as explore new books and watch videos from different children's authors.
