Teachers Recommend I Hate Reading

I teach 3rd grade and I have a little boy who started the year hating to read. I found your book. This morning it was waiting for him. He loved it and even read it to the class."

—C.S., Teacher 

"So, I ordered this for my Kindle and just read it. I laughed and thought, yeah, this is certainly some of my kiddos in my classroom. If you have ever experienced a child who is only pretending to read, then you should really read this book.”
—T., Teacher

“As someone who has worked extensively in classrooms, I have come to learn that some kids learn better through humor. This book truly emphasizes that. A delightful read that will have even anti-readers laughing from beginning to end.”
— I. H. S., Teacher
