Publisher's Summary

How do we inspire students to love reading and discovery? 

In Passionate Readers: The Art of Reaching and Engaging Every Child, classroom teacher, author, and speaker Pernille Ripp reveals the five keys to creating a passionate reading environment.

You'll learn how to:

  • Use your own reading identity to create powerful reading experiences for all students
  • Empower your students and their reading experience by focusing on your physical classroom environment
  • Create and maintain an enticing, well-organized, easy-to-use classroom library
  • Build a learning community filled with choice and student ownership
  • Guide students to further develop their own reading identity to cement them as life-long, invested readers

Throughout the book, Pernille opens up about her own trials and errors as a teacher and what she's learned along the way. She also shares a wide variety of practical tools that you can use in your own classroom, including a reader profile sheet, conferring sheet, classroom library letter to parents, and much more. These tools are available as eResources to help you build your own classroom of passionate readers. Instructions on obtaining resources are included.

Awesome book

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with me. You have encouraged me to make changes in my way of thinking about reading and how I can make changes to help my student enjoy reading, not just read to take a test.

Great content, but needs to be condensed.

I'm definitely using what I learned in my classroom, but there's so much fluff and repetition, this book was way longer than it needed to be.
