This teaching note argues that one value associated with preparing book reviews for publication is the increased capacity to develop this skill in undergraduate and MSW-level social work students. A book review assignment is presented that has been effective in developing student authors. After graduation, student authors (N = 21) agreed that acceptance for publication improved their self-confidence, increased attention to their studies, and enhanced their practice.
