After you're done reading and taking notes, it's time to put it in a format you can use. List some interesting facts or descriptions of the main character and include, if you can, specific details about his or her history and personality.
If there is more than one important character, write descriptions for the others as well. By problem, we mean the central conflict - what drives the action of the book?
A book report is probably among the easiest writing assignments you could get.
Here we'll give you a quick idea as to what a book report is and how to get started, and then we'll go over the different parts of the actual report.

Also, when we say "Read the book," we don't mean "Sprawl out on the couch with your book while your little brother is playing Mortal Kombat III and your dad is vacuuming the living room." You need to find a quiet place where you can concentrate on what you're reading, or you won't remember what's important by the time you reach the end of the book.Taking Notes We would also recommend taking notes while you read.She has to find a way to stop him and save her real sixth-grade teacher before it is too late. The first sentence captures the reader's attention.Remember that the main character, author, and title of the book must all be given in this paragraph.A book report is mainly a way to show what a book is about and a way to highlight the book's important parts.
