When it comes to children’s and young adult literature no one knows what they like and dislike better than the children and young adults themselves. Scholastic has a great service called Share What You’re Reading that students can use to create and read book reviews online. Scholastic provides a simple form on which students can write and submit their book reviews. Students do not have to create an account to use the book review service.
