  • when I look at the reading community I get to be a part of every day, I cannot help but notice how the power of it always lies within the small details; the books, the displays, the conversations and yes, the patience and persistence that it takes to help build…
  • This book focuses on the five keys we can implement into any reading community to strengthen student reading experiences, even within the 45 minute English block.
