I would highly recommend this book for teachers, parents, and other educators. It’s a great book to pick up and read a section to motivate your students, children, or other adults on the importance of reading throughout life. There are many contributors for this book from all walks of life. You can find a section throughout the book that speaks to you. Some are even only a page long but very inspirational. There are many great ideas and activities to promote the love of reading. I pick it up everyday and read an excerpt to keep me motivated!
