I love David Booth. I first listened to him at a Reading Recovery conference a few years ago, and loved his stories about teaching…including what was important to women teachers & men teachers (bulletin boards). I just saw him speak in Springfield, IL in a session with electronic child in the title. He communicates a lot in a short amount of time. Thank you for the interview! I will share this in the morning with colleagues, and point parents in my classroom to the website!

I love to listen to David Booth as he makes this talk about reading, grounded in commonsense and practicality. I love the interview and am hoping to contact David Booth to speak to parents and teachers in Bermuda.
