"Engaging, inspiring, and motivating. Mc Ewan has embraced the key components of a successful reading program and put them together in a format that is appropriate for parents, teachers, or anyone who is concerned about all students learning to read. This text will create dialogue among your staff and leave them discussing how to deliver a stronger reading program within your setting. If you are intrigued about how students learn to read and want to make a difference for all children, this is the book for you!"
Jennifer Sandberg
“The second edition of Elaine Mc Ewan’s book is a user-friendly guide that integrates research into practice. It carefully explains the research behind reading development and provides truly clear, no-nonsense steps to implement the best practices of instruction. Mc Ewan does not sugar-coat how difficult teaching reading can be, but she provides powerful methods for achieving it.”

David Montague
"Knowing what it takes to teach children to read isn't enough. We have to get more people to do the things that we know work. This is why experts like Elaine Mc Ewan are so important. She gets the word out to other educators and shows them how students learn to read. Her newest book shows us exactly what needs to be done if we truly want ALL our kids to learn to read."
Sally Grimes
"This author throws administrators a needed lifesaver! This book is clearly a must-read for educational leaders establishing literacy initiatives that are evidence based. Mc Ewan's unique experience and her manner provide exactly what is needed to guide principals and other educational leaders who may feel overwhelmed by the plethora of information on reading initatives."
Teena Linch Daniels
"This book provided me with more depth and uderstanding of the reading process than any other book I have read recently. It provides both examples of how instruction should look in the classroom as well as research behind why it should look that way. Teachers, administrators, and even parents can read this to find out how each component of the reading process should be taught in order to catch those kids who might fall through the cracks."
Ron Collins
"Once again Elaine Mc Ewan does an exceptional job reviewing the literature and polling practitioners to come up with an interesting and challenging picture of literacy instruction in the United States. The readability of her book, combined with the depth of her research, makes this a must-read for anyone seriously contemplating how to finally 'teach them ALL to read.' This book is a wonderful choice for a faculty to read and study together."
