"A good professional text is a forever resource. We go back to it time and time again for that just-right lesson or chapter we need to fuel our craft. Passionate Readers moves like that novel you can't put down. Tucked in between the narrative of Pernille's five keys and tireless risk-taking in her passionate reading environment are the candid voices of the kids speaking their truths, shining a light on reading identity. Make room for a new forever resource."

"In this framework Ripp creates a functional book that teachers can pick up and read cover to cover, or dive into the section that they need first. With all the demands on our time, in addition to the information teachers will appreciate the functionality of the book's set-up." --Claire Stein, Administrator in Racine, WI, Middleweb
