Igniting a Passion for Reading

Successful strategies for building lifetime readers

When teaching reading, the focus tends to be on skills instruction. But how can you teach the "how" without the "why"? This impassioned book offers a solid plan for engaging even the most reluctant reader. From read-alouds to creating reading lounges to author visits and so much more, this book will help schools create a vibrant reading culture. The book also includes reminiscences from many of today`s well-known children`s and young adult authors — Mem Fox, Sharon Draper, Eric Rohman, Neal Shusterman, among others — about the teacher who ignited their passion for reading. Packed with practical ways to engage and inspire readers from kindergarten through high school, this book is a "must-have" on every teacher's professional bookshelf.
