The Book Whisperer, by Donalyn Miller

The Book Whisperer, by Donalyn Miller, who is a sixth grade teacher in Texas with a great passion in “awakening the inner reader in every child.” Miller’s book focuses on tactics to inspire students to read a lot more than they themselves ever imagined. She wrote this book to not only inspire other struggling instructors but also to help her own class thrive in reading. This book is rich with practical classroom activities and advises that will surely help teacher in all grades.

The Book Whisperer is a great book to rekindle the passion to once again fill our lives with books just like a child. The story of Miller’s great enthusiasm for books since she was only a child is inspiring and captivating. Miller successfully persuades the audience to enhance their relationship with books. I enjoyed reading this lighthearted book because of Miller’s caring assurance that it is still not too late to go back to reading. I would recommend this relaxing book to all audience but especially to teachers.
