Igniting a Passion for Reading

When teaching reading, educators often focus exclusively on skills instruction. But how can you teach Igniting a Pasison for Reading the "skill" without the "will?" In his new book, Igniting a Passion for Reading, Steven Layne shows teachers how to develop readers who are not only motivated to read great books but who 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 bookshelf. From detailed preview lessons and book shopping to reading lounges and "status of the class" sessions, this book will help schools create a vibrant reading culture. Also included are reminiscences from many of today's well-known children's and young adult authors - Mem Fox, Steven Kellogg, Sharon Draper, Candace Fleming, Eric Rohmann, Neal Shusterman, Joan Bauer, and more - about the teacher or librarian 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 classrooms all over the world.

"Dr. Layne’s energy, experiences, and passion hooked us all! Our entire community anticipates his future visits."

Mrs. Tonya Wilt, Reading Teacher - Jackson Middle School, Jackson, OH
