In For the Love of Reading, David Bouchard has teamed up with literacy experts Sally Bender, Anne Letain, and Lucie Poulin-Mackey to give lists of books to inspire us and our children. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, an administrator, an auntie, a grandpa or Mum's best friend, in For the Love of Reading you will find books to strike your fancy and the fancies of all the children in your life. Each author provides lists of books for all ages, as well as lists of seasonal books, resources, favorite strategies to encourage reading and those strategies to avoid. Lucie Poulin-Mackey's lists are of books in French. Indices are provided by author and title.
School Library Journal - February 1, 2005
"The introduction...presents a convincing case that in order to build lifelong readers, the adults in the lives of young people must first read themselves." "The chapters are written in a lively, opinionated way."
Manitoba Middle Years Association Journal - September 1, 2004
"Definitely a book that should be part of every school's professional collection and is one that should be drawn to the attention of parents."
Resource Links - September 1, 2004
"Public and school librarians should certainly take a look at [this book]."
Kamloops Daily News - August 7, 2004
"To get your kids or grandkids launched early on the road to reading, get both of Bouchard's crusading guidebooks. You won't regret that you did, and neither will the kids, whatever their ages."
Saskatoon Star - May 15, 2004
"For families planning their summer reading. Highly recommended."
CM Magazine - April 23, 2004
