Do you want to write a book review for a school library book, or a draw a picture about your favourite school library book? We will display some of them on the library noticeboard and may even put some of them on our website! Book reviews are a great way to help other people decide if a book would interest them.

You can email them in or leave them in the Library Returns Box in School (your teacher will tell you where it is if you don't know).
