Praise for Reading Learning Centers for Primary Grades

"Wow! This book is a gold mine of great ideas to make reading instruction come to life. Students will enjoy the active learning in the centers, and they'll be learning essential reading skills at the same time. What a great combination! I enthusiastically recommend this book to our Project CHILD teachers, and all teachers who are seeking good ideas to actively engage children in the learning process."
—Sarah M. (Sally) Butzin, developer, Project CHILD;president, Institute for School Innovation in Tallahassee, FL

"One of the most important things we can do for our youngest citizens is teach them to read and encourage them to love it! This book shows primary teachers how to do both, by demonstrating fun ways to engage students in high-interest learning activities that will improve their reading skills."
—John Peyton, Mayor of Jacksonville, FL, and creator of Mayor Peyton's Book Club for Children
