I loved this book! I didn't agree with all of it, but even the small points where I didn't agree still stimulated my thinking and moved me forward. It is stimulating, interesting and very, very witty. I loved the -˜sweetcorn kids' and the description of the curriculum that has -˜more ticks than a mangy dog'. It is a real book written for real teachers and everyone who is a teacher should read it.
Reading for Pleasure is packed with good ideas and suggestions, many of which I shall pass on to others with the recommendation that they read Kenny Pieper's book. Within 24 hours of reading it, I found myself quoting him in front of several hundred teachers. It is so refreshing to find a book written with such clarity by a practising teacher and this book reads as though Kenny is there, with his coffee, beside you in the staffroom, talking to you.
