The Book Whisperer
Donalyn Miller, a sixth-grade language arts teacher and the author of a blog and a book both titled The Book Whisperer, says she can turn any child into a book lover, no matter how reluctant a reader they may be. Students in Miller's class end the school year having read an average of forty to fifty books, no matter how far behind in their reading skills they may have been at the beginning of the year. In her book, she shares her teaching methods and offers a list of recommended books for kids that will help parents and kids find books that kids won't be able to put down. If you've been hoping to turn your child into a reader, this is the book for you!
