I have previously read and reviewed Lexi’s Relic Hunter series books. I enjoyed them enormously and was looking forward to what Lexi had in store for us next. The Book Dragon Club is a book journal, I would say, aimed at children reading Middle Grade. I think they would get the most enjoyment from it.
The format of this journal is very engaging. Different font styles and illustrations are used to great effect. Making each section unique and entertaining. The first section is about Awesome Book Challenges. My favourite being The Loony Locations Challenge. The children and I had great fun trying to read a book standing on our heads.
For creativity I really enjoyed the book club section. In here there are options to re write an ending, send an email to a character and draw an illustration among others. My son enjoyed making a top trumps style game with hero’s and villains from some of his favourite reads. Although I couldn’t bring myself to cut the out the cards from the book, we made our own.
If unlike me, you have no issue with cutting out the pages (they are designed to be!) there are plenty of activities to do. Bookmarks, book club badges and book choice mini post cards.
There is so much packed into this journal, books that have been recommended, lists of favourite books and a review section at the end. This is a perfect starter reading journal, in fact I’m hoping Lexi does an adult version, although maybe without the standing on your head to read challenge.
My thanks to Lexi for a copy in exchange for an honest review and to Rachel for the invite onto the tour.
