The Book Whisperer Chapter 5

Walking the Walk

Once again, the title of this chapter sums it up!

"If we want our students to read and enjoy it for the rest of their lives, then we must show them what a reading life looks like."  I've got something to confess...I like to read.  I do.   BUT I don't read as much as I would like or as much as I should.  It's not my fault--I have to blame the blog world!  I am improving though because I am currently reading three books. 1.  Made To Crave   2.  The Help    and    3.  The Book Whisperer, of course!

I love how Miller ends the chapter:   "You cannot inspire others to do what you are not inspired to do yourself."
