the gift of reqading  

I received another gift around Christmas in the form of this lovely professional book by Steven Layne. IGNITING A PASSION FOR READING (Stenhouse, 2009) is certainly a topic near and dear to my heart. Steven's book is a must read for teachers who want to bring a love of books and reading to their students. Vignettes by authors of children's and YA literature, including Mem Fox and Jordan Sonnenblick and Joan Bauer, emphasize the major concepts of the book. I read it pretty much cover to cover; the text is "user friendly," a reflection of the passionate and energizing author behind the words. Welcome, Steven, to the professional side of writing. It is terrific to have your voice join ours.

Igniting a Passion for Reading
I caught wind of this book in your journal and looked it up on the Stenhouse website. I'm waiting for my tangible copy but couldn't help myself, I read it cover to cover on the internet (and I LOATHE reading anything of length on the computer). What an easy read filled with great ideas. Thanks for the great lead!
