Themes: Love of Reading, Inspiring Students to Read
Genre: Adult Non-Fiction
At first glance, I could have said there’s nothing new in this book. Reading aloud and sharing my own passion for reading have always been the best tools in my toolbox as a language arts teacher. Layne’s own teaching experience as well as his dogged determination to get every child in his classroom loving reading are the clear inspiration in sharing easy to implement and well thought out strategies that can immediately be used in the classroom. Layne’s anecdotes about his own experiences in engaging reluctant readers, and at times reluctant parents or colleagues create an easy to read book with tonnes of ideas.
