"I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book."—Groucho Marx.
Twitter, TV, and Facebook have earned their place in the universe, but there is still no substitute for reading more substantial matter. Donalyn Miller became famous as the author of The Book Whisperer and the keeper of its blog, but she has gained much of her literacy-promoting expertise as a sixth-grade language arts and social studies teacher. Her second book draws on the feedback of hundreds of adult and student readers to help parents and instructors to teach and encourage lifelong reading habits. Reading in the Wild is no eyes-in-the-sky approach; its detailed practical strategies, lesson plans, tip, and ideas can work wonders even with reluctant readers. A trade paperback original.
