This paper outlines and describes the results of a pilot study, which was conducted to explore the effectiveness of an online book review project. It focused on the production of book reviews by primary school children in the form of digital video. Children from infant level (4/5 years) up to sixth class (11/12 years) across the six participating schools completed digital video book reviews. The primary aim of this study was to ascertain if and how the concept of online book reviews might be used in Irish classrooms.
