Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

My Challenge

In an article I published in “Reading Today” from the International Reading Association I challenged schools around the nation to let me show them how to create lifelong book-loving readers with the added benefit of high test scores. I am still waiting for someone to call! I do not advocate giving millions of dollars a year to textbook companies or those producing packaged pablum. The money that I use goes for books that get into the hands of readers. With access and time to read- great test scores will follow. I cannot believe the billions that are wasted on packaged programs. It is time to end the malpractice and unleash the power of books and the power of reading.
