Editorial Reviews

Review

"One could term this book as a major cannon in the reading research wars. Krashen builds his case for wide reading by analyzing and presenting in a very readable text hundreds of research studies spanning a century. . . . Whether you read the first edition or missed it, this book is an essential read. And it can be read in one sitting if you just read the marginal notes that guide you through the principle ideas. It is a book to share, discuss, argue about, and use as evidence for strong library book programs and large budgets to purchase books that kids are interested in reading." - Teacher Librarian

"All teachers, librarians, and anyone interested in the reading development of children, young adults, and ESL students will benefit from reading this book." - VOYA

"Krashen argues that FVR (free voluntary reading) has a dramatic effect on second-language learners, vocabulary acquisition, cognitive development, and writing style, and is the key to linguistic improvement." - Curriculum Connections/School Library Journal

"This title will be of particular interest to language and linguistics professionals and educators concerned with equipping children to navigate their worlds. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"Dr. Krashen continues to make the case for FVR. He explores new research since the book's original edition in 1993, discusses the role of libraries and the importance of reading, and considers the effects of television on reading." - American Libraries

About the Author

Stephen D. Krashen is emeritus professor of education at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He is best known for his work in establishing a general theory of second language acquisition, as the cofounder of the Natural Approach, and as the inventor of sheltered subject matter teaching. He is the author of numerous books, including Three Arguments Against Whole Language and Why They Are Wrong (1999), Every Person a Reader: An Alternative to the California Task Force Report on Reading (1997), and Under Attack: The Case Against Bilingual Education (1997), all available from Heinemann.
