The Book

What began as a belief that
it's never too late to inspire a love of reading,
became the book, Book Love,
and then the Book Love Foundation.

In Book Love: Developing Depth, Stamina, and Passion in Adolescent Readers, teacher, author, and advocate Penny Kittle takes student apathy head on, first by recognizing why students don’t read and then showing us that when we give kids books that are right for them, along with time to read and regular response to their thinking, we can create a pathway to satisfying reading that leads to more challenging literature and ultimately, a love of reading.

To order a copy of the book that inspired the foundation, visit the publisher's website. There you can also read an overview and a sample chapter.
