Reviewers are Raving about "All Children Read: "

"" This text promises to be a timely, sensitive, and comprehensive literacy text for teachers whose lives are enriched daily from working with diverse learners." "
Rebecca S. Anderson
University of Memphis

"" Two strengths are most apparent: There is a wealth of information which shows the disposition (attitudes and beliefs) of an effective teacher and it provides the rationale for the development of such dispositions if one intends to teach. The second strength is the depth and breath of information that the text provides on the teaching of writing. This text provides valuable support and will be an excellent resource for preservice teachers." "
Margaret Bell Davis
Eastern Kentucky University

"" There are a variety of solidly researched strategies that can be used to build the students' knowledge and performance base. The information helps the pre-service teachers attain the knowledge needed todevelop their teaching strategies." "
Charlotte Black
California State University, San Bernardino

"" This is not the normal, bland writing we get in methods textbooks! The writing is excellent... I enjoyed reading this book and I salute the authors' spirit, their desire to present the truth about complex issues that many others wish to simplify." "
James Zarrillo
California State University, Hayward
