Product Description

Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.

Editorial Reviews

[Starred review] Miller, a sixth-grade language arts andsocial studies teacher and blogger, has enabled students of manydifferent backgrounds to enjoy reading and to be good at it; herstudents regularly score high on the Texas standardized tests. Herapproach is simple yet provocative: affirm the reader in everystudent, allow students to choose their own books, carve out extrareading time, model authentic reading behaviors, discard timewornreading assignments such as book reports and comprehensionworksheets, and develop a classroom library filled withhigh-interest books. Her students regularly read more than 40 booksin a school year and leave her classroom with an appreciation andlove of books and reading. Miller provides many tips for teachersand parents and includes a useful list of ultimate readingsuggestions picked by her students. This outstanding contributionto the literature is highly recommended for teachers, parents, andothers serving young students.—Mark Bay, Univ. of theCumberlands Lib., Williamsburg, KY (Library Journal, March15, 2009)

"Mrs. Miller's message was powerful, yet simple. Shereminded educators of the simplest way to foster a love forreading: let students read for fun without asking for a book reportwhen they are done." (The Examiner, November 4, 2009)
