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.


  • Great book for a Reading Teacher

    By Abmoloney
    I have spent many years teaching reading and have listened to many different presentations about how to teach reading. I even have a Masters Degree in Reading. Mrs. Miller sums up years of study in just a few short pages. This book has helped me refocus and fine tune my approach to teaching reading. It is a great book for any Reading Teacher.

    This book is a motivational page turner. I read it two weeks before returning to school after summer vacation and it completely inspired me to revamp my entire literacy approach. Thank you Ms. Miller for sharing your common sense approach to building true life- long readers!
