The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

by Donalyn Miller

​​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 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. This book includes a list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students like to read.
