The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child - Donalyn Miller

This book didn't have as much impact on me as "Reading in the Wild" did.  I wonder if that is because of the order I read them in?  I also didn't think there were as many practical tips for me to take out of this book.


However, if you are a teacher who does not enjoy reading yourself or a teacher who loves reading and doesn't share that with your students, you will get a lot out of this book.  I especially like how Miller discusses ways to get around school / national requirements but still make time for your own goals and priorities.
