Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.About the Author:
Donalyn currently facilitates the community blog, The Nerdy Book Club and co-writes a monthly column for Scholastic's Principal-to-Principal Newsletter
. Her articles about teaching and reading have appeared in publications such as The Reading Teacher, Educational Leadership
and The Washington Post
