Not sure what to say? Keep these tips in mind:
* Be honest: Give your review personality
and remember that kids want to know what you REALLY think.
* Be detailed: Tell us exactly what you
liked or didn't. Was it a story you couldn't put down? Were the characters just
like people you know? What made it special?
* Be accurate: Be sure to get the title,
author, and character names right, plus double-check your spelling and grammar.
We aren't able to post reviews that don't make sense or have the wrong
* DON'T spoil it: Please don't give away
the ending! Tell readers enough about the plot to hook them, but keep them
hanging so that they want to read the book.
