This is a great unit and resource for teaching book reviews. Thanks so much for how thorough and well thought out each lesson is. The lessons are easy to implement and are accessible for many different students. I am so excited to use this with my students to wrap up our unit on opinion writing.

I am starting this unit in my class next week. I love how thorough it is. Everything is there for me, and it's all of high quality. I am so excited to introduce book reviews to my students after just finishing learning how to summarize! The Reading Rainbow website is no longer at the link listed, but I did find some YouTube videos of Reading Rainbow book reviews. The worldreading.org website is a great find. Thanks so much for your wonderful lessons!
