Review quote

"The suggestions are quick and easy, and for a teacher who really wants her children to leave her class with a love of reading, this book is a gold mine!" - Timmons Times blog "If you are a teacher, a librarian, a parent- anyone who wants to get kids reading more- then you need to get your hand on Steven Layne's book. I knew I would like the book as soon as I saw the title, but I had no idea how improtant it would be. It has earned itself a place of honor on my professional book shelf." - The Reading Zone blog "I think this is an extremely important book for our times. Igniting a Passion for Reading reminds us of what is truly important about teaching and learning." - Room 241 blog "I couldn't get enough of what Dr. Layne was saying and found myself yelling out, 'Yes! I've been telling people this.' This is a must have title for school, classroom teacher, and library collections." - School Library Journal
