TQR: Taste, Quality, Review
A TQR will be a 1 page critique report on 10 children’s books..
The first paragraph will discuss your opinion of the book and if it was a book that children would enjoy and
The second paragraph will identify one quality in the book that stood out for you. The qualities could be style,
setting, plot, characters, and themes. We will be identifying qualities in the first two weeks of class.
