Donalyn Miller #EduLS

Day 30

If you are in anyway connected to reading then you NEED know Donalyn Miller!

I read her first book The Book Whisperer 11 years ago right before my daughter was born. My fabulous mother-in-law gave it to me (she's a retired Reading Recovery teacher).  I loved it so much that I past the book around to my mommy group. 

I'm currently reading her second book Wild Readers as a book study with my fellow district librarians. I wish I had read it while I was still a Deaf Ed teacher!

Today I listened to the Edu All-Stars podcast #72. Their guest was the one and only, Donalyn Miller! She is amazing! Not only do I love to read her writings but I loved listening to her talk about reading. 

I'm enrolled in a Scholastic webinar that she's doing April 30. I'm so excited about it!

I have learned so much from her about reading. About how to make children into readers. How to help them pick books. How to help them develop themselves as readers. And so much more. 

This post was inspired by Educator Learning Series Challenge #12.

  1. Donalyn Miller is fan-flippin-tastic. As are the EduAllStars. Don't you just love the awesomeness of book folk? ;)
