This term in library we have been reading books selected from the CBCA 2019 Eve Pownall awards and then judging them. We were judging them on their visuals, information and their layout. We created criteria together. It is important for a non-fiction book to have… good pictures, good layout, the correct information and keeps the reader enthralled without being able to put the book down. My favourite book was the Make Believe by M.C Escher for kids. I really enjoyed it because it showed many drawings and sketches by M.C Escher, and he told us how to do some. I loved how there was so many optical illusions in it.
Make Believe is my favourite because…
There’s were a lot of pictures and optical illusions and 3D things. I gave him a 10/10 for the visuals.
There were many things that made me want to see what was next, so for the layout I gave it 10/10.
It had lots of information on each page which informed us about the picture and about the author so I gave the book a 10/10.
Have you ever read this book? How much did you enjoy it out of 10?
