This resource contains six sections: Vocabulary Development, Identifying Important Information, Character Analysis, Summarizing & Sequencing Events, Reasoning & Critical Thinking, and Creativity & Design. Each section begins with a Teacher's Notes page that will provide suggestions to help you to introduce the sections and to obtain the best results from your students. One of the first steps for appropriate literacy development in young children is to provide meaningful activities that will prepare them for successful and enjoyable reading experiences. Book reports allow the young reader to share their thoughts about the stories they have heard or have read themselves. As well, students need the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the materials.
