Summer Book Study: "Reading in the Wild" by Donalyn Miller

I am so excited to be joining with several dozen bloggers on a wonderful journey this summer!  I am personally inviting you to this amazing summer book study which showcases Donalyn Miller's "Reading in the Wild"!  I was part of the book study a few summers ago when we read "The Book Whisperer", so I am tickled pink to be reading along with my friends once again this summer.

An amazing reader and teacher, Miller's first book, The Book Whisperer, shares her experiences in middle grades classrooms and how she has fostered a love of reading in her students. Her classroom is INSPIRING! The book is so down-to-earth, a fast read, and filled with simple (but powerful) ways to create a culture of reading in your classroom. In The Book Whisperer, Millers leaves you with her frustration - students leaving her classroom loving reading but faced with future teachers that do not share Donalyn's enthusiasm for reading. Gradually, her students leave the practice of daily, just-because reading.

Here enters, Donalyn's second book, Reading in the Wild. This books acts as a follow-up to the first and discusses how to foster a love of reading that is lifelong and sustainable...even when a passionate teacher is not present. As a 5th grade teacher, this is powerful to me. How do I structure reading and sharing opportunities that set the foundation for life-long reading? Reading in the Wild address this question!

I would love for you to join us! You can click here to get your copy:
