This is one of my favorite books about teaching reading. It really goes into depth about what reading is and how to reach the hard-to-reach kids. Wilhelm uses strong theory to back up the stratgies. I love it.

Dr. Wilhelm provides teachers with a wide variety of creative visualization reading strategies and logic behind the usage of such strategies. I plan on using quite a few of these wonderful reading strategies in the upcoming school year- can't wait!

Not a favorite-not a lot of new territory. I DID learn from their chart contrasting information and knowledge. But overall, I am disappointed.
