A Beta Reader is someone who reads a book before its release date, and gives their opinion on it.
I'm looking for beta readers, and it's a brilliant opportunity for both adults and kids.
5 reasons why your class should become beta readers:
It teaches children to read critically
This develops comprehension skills
It shows children that their opinion matters
Children learn how to write meaningful book reviews
You get a free book!
If you're interested in getting a beta reader pack, then get in touch with email@example.com and put "Clemency Crow Beta Reader" in the subject line.
You'll be doing a wonderful thing!
