Book Club Blog! By Students, For Students

Did you know that reading for pleasure is the single best way to improve reading, writing, spelling, and even math skills? We at Tutoring For Success believe that even the most reluctant of readers can become interested in a good book with just a little encouragement. Sometimes, all it takes is a recommendation from friends. On this blog, we will feature reviews of fabulous books by the students who love them, allowing kids not only the chance to share their favorite stories, but display their talent for writing as well! If you submit a student written book review that gets published on our blog, we will send you a $5 gift card to Starbucks or Baskin Robbins, your choice! Only serious entries will be considered for publication. Visit our blog regularly to learn about new books that other kids have loved.

Here are the requirements to submit a book:

  • Your name, address, and grade

  • Name of book and author

  • Recommended for what age group?

  • One paragraph summary of the plot, but don't give away the ending!

  • 1 - 2 paragraphs on what makes this a great book and why other people should read it


Start submitting today! Post your review as a comment, or email it as a Word document to kathleen@tutoringforsuccess.com.
