Book Jacket Report

Due: Friday, March 3, 2017

        For your next book report, you will create a book jacket that tells about the book you have chosen to read. The book must be an appropriate level chapter book with at least 100 pages.  The name of your book is required in a week’s time.


o   Cover/Panel: Design a cover for your book jacket that includes the title of the book, the author’s name, and your name.  Include a related illustration. (Does not have to be the illustration that is on the book. You can make up your own.)

o   Write a Summary page:  Write a complete summary of the book using the worksheet included. This is to assist you in writing the summary portion of the book report.  You should have the opening, conflict, and the resolution.  This is to be turned in with your Book Jacket. 

o   Inside Left/Panel:  Copy the complete summary of your story.

o   Inside Right/Panel: Choose the main problem in your story, and draw a picture that illustrates it.  Under the picture, write a complete sentence describing the problem.  Then, draw a picture of the solution to this problem and write a complete sentence describing the solution.  The pictures should be creative, colorful and carefully drawn.

o   Back Cover/Panel: Write your own book reviews for your book.  Make up fake book review comments depicting how you felt about the story. See examples.

o   Spine: Write the title and author of your book.

Happy Reading!
