Reading in the Wild

Reading in the Wild: The Book Whisperer's Keys to Cultivating Lifelong Reading Habits - Donalyn Miller, Susan Kelley

"Reading changes your life.  Reading unlocks worlds unknown or forgotten, taking travelers around the world and through time.  Reading helps you escape the confines of school and pursue your own education.  Through characters - the saints and the sinners, real or imagined - reading shows you how to be a better human being."


I made so many notes reading this book I practically wrote my own!  There are so many practical ideas to take straight into classroom or library practice.  And then there's the ideas to think about and adapt to your own cultural and environmental settings.


Recommended for ALL teachers.  Not just primary.  And not just English.  ALL.
