Book Love

Book Love

Book Love by Penny Kittle shares stories on how readers develop depth, stamina and passion. Though written with adolescents in mind, the message is absolutely appropriate for elementary age.  She states that the path to difficult reading begins with books that students enjoy. To build capacity for reading requires practice and lots of it to build stamina.  This reminds me of exercise. Anyone who’s tried distance running can attest to the need of gradually increasing exercise over time. Building stamina to get over that hill and then add another hill the following week takes energy and committed focus.

Kittle does a great job of offering strategies integrated into the day to achieve the desired effect – passion for reading. A great read for those who are interested in supporting the reading process.
