The Book Dragon Club
By Lexi Rees
Rated: 5 stars *****
Today I am pleased to be closing this lovely blog tour for The Book Dragon Club for Lexi Rees. It is an excellent book for children to inspire them to read. It is packed with so many fun challenges and quizzes and so much more. Children certainly won’t be bored with it this summer and beyond. There is lots to do themselves, with families and friends. The full blurb and review are below as are buy links and about the author.
I thank Lexi Rees for sending me a copy of the book and for Rachel at Random Resources Blog Tour for inviting me onto this blog tour.
The Book Dragon Club
Packed with awesome activities, this journal has everything a book dragon needs!
- Tackle the fun reading challenges
- Set up a book club with your friends
- Host award ceremonies and parties
- Make up games and quizzes based on your favourite books
Plus space for book reviews, reading lists and so much more.
This book is amazing and is absolutely exciting. It isn’t a story book. This is the most fun, interactive book I’ve seen in awhile that encourages children to get reading and having the most terrific fun with so many different activities. This is a book that is fabulous for both confident and reluctant readers alike. This could be used at home and within schools. It is full of lots of different types of activities linked to books and reading.
It is a book where you can record the books you have read in the most fun and dynamic way.
There are pages that give children ideas as to what books they may like to read, not by title, but by theme, such as there’s a segment to write down books that make you laugh, had an animal in it, this sort of thing; therefore could expand your children’s reading choices and expand their horizons.
The book sets tick-box challenges, which can enthuse children to read in different locations within the UK and abroad.
There are cutout membership cards as it encourages you to set-up your own book club and call it anything you want.
There are pages, encouraging children to think about the heroes and villains of the books they read and score them and write what special powers they have etc.
Why not use the cut out pages to create your own book cover or bookmarks as well as pages of who recommended what book to you and to write your own little book reviews.
There are pages encouraging children to write, such as their own ending to a book or to choose a book with a cliff-hanger and to really think about how that could possibly end.
There’s a cool section that gets children thinking what is best – the movie or the book and why?
There are party invitations, complete with a page to list your party feast and seating plan.
There is also a page encouraging to write to an author.
There is so much to do within this book, children certainly won’t be bored. Watch as their interest widens. This book is fabulous!
