Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Standing firm in her opinion that schools are largely to blame for kids' reluctance to read, the author of Parents Who Love Reading, Kids Who Don't (1993) offers practical guidance to parents who want to instill in their kids a love of reading and an appreciation of literature. That's a tall order, but Leonhardt explains not only why it's necessary but also, in very down-to-earth terms, how it can be done--for teens, perhaps the toughest to teach, but especially for young children who are just becoming acquainted with books. Leonhardt will undoubtedly raise the hackles of parents who bar their kids from comics and series books like Goosebumps, and she has some strong opinions about multicultural literature in school and developing reading skills in kids with ADHD. Yet her regard for reading is wonderful, and her unstuffy, eminently sensible approach to books feels like a breath of fresh air amid the jargon of the video and the CD-ROM. If you read her previous book, you'll want to read this one--the theory and passion are the same. Stephanie Zvirin
