Writing a traditional book report where kids write a paper summarizing what they read including the plot, characters, setting, and what they thought of the book is effective, but BORING! We want to make learning fun so kids will get excited about not only reading a good book, but remembering what they read and creating an effective summary – an important skill they will use throughout their entire life!

This super cute and clever book report idea incorporates various fun book report ideas into one concept – pizza! This is not just for one book report, but rather clever ideas to do 8 book reports over the course of the school year. When they finish, they will have completed their reading pizza.
Book Report Idea
Now, choose to either print the free book report template in color or black and white. The color has tan mushrooms, green peppers, red pepperoni, bacon, pink ham, white onions, red tomatoes, etc. Or let your student decorate their pizza as they read with crayons, markers, and colored pencils. Finally, cut apart the pizza into 8 slices.
Either option you choose, this is a fun way to encourage kids to read .
Book Report Form
Students will read the book of their choice or one from an approved list. I like to use this book report activity to get them to read books I want them to read – across a variety of genres, styles, periods of history, and award winning classic books.
When kid finish reading a book, they will pick a slice of pizza and write on the slide the book title, book author, and date completed on a slice of pizza.
Pizza Reading Comprehension
The reading comprehension part comes in because each slice of pizza lists a different book report activity for kids to complete that will help ensure they have good reading comprehension of the books they read and can easily and accurately summarize what they read. It’s up to you if you let them do multiple of the same kind or one of each.
