REVIEW GUIDELINES

As of 6/30/2014, the Youth Services Department is setting the following guidelines for reviews:

- All reviews should be at least 2 sentences in length.

- Children who are not yet writing on their own yet are welcome to compose reviews alongside their parents and submit them.

- Reviews should not be summaries of a text. Children must give feedback and opinions about the books they read. A summary will not be approved as a review.

- PLEASE review only books which you are reading this summer (due to the fact that they count as raffle tickets)

- We reserve the right to fix typographical errors.

HAPPY READING!

It was a great book. The author added a lot of useful details and demonstrated the principle of "show, don't tell" extremely well.

This is a really funny book because Greg does some silly things that make me laugh. For example, one time Greg got into a bath with his pants on! I would recommend this book because it is funny and interesting. I really enjoyed reading it.

When Miss Dole, the graduation teacher, teaches about graduation, the kids all get crazy. Then, she finally says "our graduation is today!" and all the boys scream. I liked this book because it was funny and really interesting to read. I had a good time reading it.
