These book report worksheets are great for kindergarten or grade 1 students. There are large lines for them to easily write in with places to draw and show their creative side as well.
And now we have tons more fun printable kindergarten worksheets to share.
This worksheet pack also includes a reading log so your child can keep track of the books that they’ve read. At this stage, I’d have them use a favorite book of theirs to work on the book report so that it is easier to recall any details. I’d discuss each question first before setting your child off to write. I have boys who are reluctant writers so this helps them think through things first before they get to the daunting task of writing.
Plus, these book report worksheets bring so much fun to the world of reading. Once they find a book that they love to read, have them explore more and record what they read with these simple book reports.
Most book reports allow the students to write down what they saw, but these let them draw them out as well. Who doesn’t like to draw out their thoughts and ideas from a book?

This book report can be used for any books. I love having the child create their own book cover, they always pull out something interesting from the book that you didn’t think was significant but they really hung on to it.
Do you keep track of the books they read? My son reads a ton so he forgets which books he read that he wanted to continue in the series so it’s a good way to keep track of what they read.
More Book Report Templates
These printable book report templates from Etsy are great. Just print and kids can do their book reports right away. You can either get the Dinosaur Book Report Printable or the Stars Printable Book Report. They both have themes so kids will enjoy writing their book report entries.
Even when the kids are older I like having a space for them to draw something. They can get stuck on the writing part but if you can get them to start drawing then they can write about what they drew.
Introduce the different story elements like setting, characters, problem, and solution so kids can start to recognize these elements in each story in your book.
We don’t do a book report for each book, I don’t want them to dread finishing a book. So depending on how many books your child is reading, it may be one in every 4 or 5 books.
Or I might have a child do the drawing and writing sheets only and not do the more writing-intensive worksheets for some books. And the go over the story elements and other things orally.
The focus is to get them to read a lot of books so I don’t want to kill that joy.
