Fourth graders will write plenty of book reports throughout the year. If your teacher doesn’t give you a specific guideline to follow, here is a basic outline to help you complete your book report. At the top of the page write down the title of the book, author and illustrator. Next, give a summary of the main characters of the story and explain what makes them stand out. Explain the story in your own words. Your conclusion should be about your opinion of the book and whether you liked it or not.
