    READ THIS BOOK

    This book and *Building Student Literacy Through Sustained Silent Reading* changed my thinking about reading in high schools. It changed my thinking so much, in fact, our high school is starting a school-wide SSR program. Educators- our students should be reading books. This book taught me WHY we should create time during the day for SSR. It taught me WHY we should teach *the classics*. This book taught me how to ENTICE students to pick up a book. This book reminded me how crucial it is that WE READ. If you are an educator and you complain or hear complaints that *our students can't read!*, then read this book. Then, read more.

    Love it, I think we have taken the fun out of reading too often,

    Love it, I think we have taken the fun out of reading too often, I give my kids 20 minutes of indepenedent reading daily when they can read anything they want, and not have to answer questions or take a test about it :)

    Important read

    This is an important read for all teachers K-12. If you struggle to get students to read, then you need to read Readicide.

    Should be an essential...

    This book should be a requirement for every teacher. It clearly explains how we are teaching our students to hate reading and how to rectify this situation. It is relevant for every grade level. Forget the curriculum and teach these students to love and value the written word! So simple, and yet brilliant!
