Summary, etc.:
Everyone agrees that reading is important, but kids today tend to lose interest in reading before adolescence in this digital age. Willingham provides practical solutions for engendering a love of reading that lasts into adulthood. The three key elements for reading enthusiasm-- decoding, comprehension, and motivation-- are explained in depth, and the author provides practical orientation toward supporting these three elements from birth through adolescence.
