Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Lesesne uses the attention-grabbing term of the title to describe the sheer joy that reading brings to some individuals but not to others. The succinct text wastes no time in painting a portrait of tween readers (a definition expanded to include those students in grades 4-8) and conveys why it's crucial to engage them at this stage. Grounded in research (both the author's and notable others), the book offers concrete solutions to reading resistance by highlighting a baker's dozen of strategies that require little time or money to implement. Highly motivational for teachers frustrated by emphasis on the assessment of reading ability rather than reading passion, this title reads like a heart-to-heart chat with a trusted colleague. While it may be most helpful for reading professionals, it is accessible to anyone concerned about the future of reading. Filled with various lists of kid-appealing titles, including an appendix of 100 Great Books for Tweens, this volume presents books appropriate for every stage of the target audience's development. An inspired choice for any professional collection.–H. H. Henderson, Heritage Middle School, Deltona, FL

I am a middle school media specialist, and I first borrowed this book from our professional library. But just as quickly as I began reading it I knew I had to buy my own copy. Lesesne covers so many of the topics I deal with on a daily basis, from the voracious reader who can't get enough books to the reluctant reader who hates being dragged into the media center. I think this book ought to be required reading for all English/language arts teachers, media specialists/librarians, and in a prefect world, parents too!

16 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Lois A. Buckman on June 25, 2006
Format: Paperback
Naked Reading is a wonderful book for either someone teaching pre-service teachers or a teacher who has been in the "trenches" for a number of years. I may be marginally biased because I am mentioned in the book, but that does not negate the wonderful ideas that Lesesne presents.

The book covers specific ways in which to excite students to read. The chapter on energizing tweens puts together what Lesesne calls T.A.R.G.E.T and like the book, this idea is right on "target" with ideas that are presented in an accessible manner for all who read the book. Many titles are mentioned throughout each chapter and an annotated bibliography is included.

This book has some good reading lists. I can't say the information was really new. The lists of books for teens to read make it worthwhile.

I had the pleasure of hearing this author speak at a conference for librarians and reading teachers. She is witty and smart and has many great ideas about getting our kids to read! I recommend this book to any educator who struggles with finding books for students which will keep their attention, and to any parent who honestly wants a reading or book-loving child.

If nothing else, the title should grab your attention! Teri Lesene gives stories about her granddaughter intermixed with sage advice for media specialists who are new to the profession as well as those who have worked in the media center for years. Full of ideas and ways to make the media center a better place to hook a student into reading.
