Reading For Fun: Building The Story

Updated: Oct 16, 2022

Building a story is an art. You have to start with the basics and work your way through the characters, settings, plot, and more!

I thought it would be fun to use the idea of building a story and turn it into a worksheet, with an actual building involved—well, a picture of a building. A castle, to be exact. And so, this next worksheet came alive.

You'll see many building blocks of questions about the book that ultimately forms the entire castle. I hope everyone has a great time with this one!

Since a good building starts with a good foundation, I'll be working my way up this worksheet rather than down! The Book Title and Author name spots are right at the bottom, kicking everything off.

On top of that are four blocks to include: Who are the characters? Describe the setting(s). Interesting tidbits about the story. And lastly, what was the problem?

Building higher are spaces to answer questions: What was the most exciting part? And, what was the solution? Between these spaces is a big box for a summary of the book.

At the top, I have spaces to write down a favorite part of the book, any other notes, and a five-star rating.

There you have it! A great worksheet in the shape of a castle, building the story from the bottom up! With so many books out there, I hope everyone has a chance to use this worksheet and enjoy the fun it brings when thinking about the books!

Happy Reading!
