Editorial Reviews

The new edition of The Reading Zone does not just celebrate the joy of independent reading in our classrooms; it is a no holds barred, knock-down-drag-out, hugely effective takedown of any argument to the contrary, full of examples and explanations of classroom practices, questioning guides, charts, parents letters, and more. You leave the pages feeling a sense of urgency and the faith that you absolutely can make reading possible for all students. Nancie and Anneâ??s impassioned, well-researched, and practical new edition should be required reading for every educator, school board member, and parentâ??our children need us to throw politics and personalities aside and create this kind of lasting change. -- Christopher Lehman, Founding Director, the Educator Collaborative, consultant, author
