Full Description

Promoting literacy should be our focus from before our children are born until they leave secondary school. Teaching children to read and to love reading is the shared responsibility of every teacher, every administrator and every parent. Together David Bouchard and Wendy Sutton explore how we can turn our homes and our schools into environments rich in literature and how we can model the love of reading for our children and our students. This is a book for every adult who has contact with children, not just every parent, teacher and principal, but every grandparent, every aunt and uncle, every neighbor, every family friend, every school custodian and school secretary, every district administrator. It is a book that challenges and inspires.
