Our young readers often ask our writers how they can become authors. The answer is always the same: read, read, read.

It works the other way as well. To become a better reader, write, write, write!

Looking for a quick writing assignment for your kids?
Have them write us a review on iTunes.

We have a lot of adult reviews - like this one from "botheredandbewildered" who said she appreciates how the show "expertly directs the literary conversation among these young women to probe into how the novel relates to their lives."

But we'd LOVE to get feedback from more kids. Challenge them to tell us how to make a better show! Just go to Book Club for Kids iTunes, click on "review" and have them write a few lines. Oh, and give us some stars!
