One of my fondest memories as a child was creating book reports and sharing my favorite books with my classmates.

I like to encourage my children to be creative and have FUN after reading their own independent books or ones that I assign for their school work.

For some of these ideas, my children do the book reports on books we read during our  read a louds.
