Abstract

Have you ever noticed the different ways that children respond to texts, and wondered why?

It has been written to help teachers recognise common but unbalanced reading responses and gives valuable advice about how to coach children to engage with stories in more effective and balanced ways. This short book will change the way that you think about reading. Read it and you will see the pupils you teach in a totally new way.
