When teaching reading, American classrooms often focus exclusively on skills instruction. But how can you teach the “how” without the “why?” In his new book, Igniting a Passion for Reading, Steve Layne shows teachers how to develop readers who are not only motivated to read great books, but also love reading in its own right. Packed with practical ways to engage and inspire readers from kindergarten through high school, this book is a “must-have” on every teacher’s professional book shelf.
Well-known for his children’s books, young adult novels, and keynote speeches across the nation and around the world, Steve, aka Dr. Read, offers teachers everywhere a plan for engaging even the most reluctant reader. From read-alouds to creating reading lounges to author visits and so much more, this book will help schools create a vibrant reading culture. The book also includes reminiscences from many of today’s well-known children’s and young adult authors—Mem Fox, Sharon Draper, Steven Kellogg, Candace Fleming, Eric Rohman, Neal Shusterman, and Joan Bauer—about the teacher who ignited their passion for reading.
Written with humor, grace, and poignancy, Igniting a Passion for Reading will have a profound effect on the teaching of reading in our nation’s schools.

I just like the Book Whisperer's strategy a bit better.
Interestingly, I teach in a teacher preparation program, and this book appeals to the males more, and Whisperer appeals to the females. I think it has to do with tone. Regardless, I love his message so I recommend they read one or the other.
With only a little over a week before the next school year ready to start, I feel equipped and ready to purposefully create life long readers that will one day be our country's next leaders. There are no excuses as to why this cannot be done. Thank you Dr. Layne for your infinite wisdom to an epidemic problem. I cannot wait to write to you at the end of this next school year to tell you how much my students have grown as readers from your thought provoking suggestions.

My only request would be that the resources for photocopy would be accessible on-line rather than simply printed in the back of the book. This addition would make the book much more teacher-friendly! Hopefully, the publisher will see this review and make that change in the next addition. :)
