Son’s Book Review
1. What is the book about?
The book has lots of tips about how to survive in Minecraft. It also tells you things you need to do things in the game, like going to places that are dangerous.
2. What do you think of the book cover and the images inside the book?
The cover is pretty plain. The pictures in the book are ok, but they are not in color so you can’t tell what blocks to use in the crafting recipes. That’s a bit of a problem.
3. What are your favorite parts of the book?
I really like the whole book because it had lots of good information.
4. Is there anything you didn’t like?
The only problem is that it seems like they expect you to have a lot of every material. I think the book is for more advanced players.
5. Can you tell us three things that you learned from this book?
I learned a lot of new things like, 1.how to craft a lot of things; 2.how to build a well-defended base; and 3.how to kill strong mobs.
6. Overall, what do you think about this book?
I think it is a really good book.
7. Who do you think would like this book?
I think just about everybody who plays Minecraft would like this book, but especially those who have been playing for a while.
