Anyone who loves to read and wants our young people to develop a similar passion will savor Better than Life - an enchanting, beautifully written, and wise book.--Regie Routman

An essential guide to helping children discover the pleasures of reading!

In Better than Life, Daniel Pennac shares the secrets that all book lovers treasure. Delving into his experiences as a parent, a writer and a teacher, he asks, how does the love of reading begin? How is it lost? And how can it be regained? This remarkable book explores simple ways to create a life-long devotion to reading:

  • how reading aloud can ensure that a love of books begins
  • why it is important that children develop a private relationship with books
  • what "The Reader's Bill of Rights" can do to guarantee children value reading

This book reads like a novel with gripping anecdotes from literature and fresh insights into creating and nurturing enthusiastic readers.
