"Very nicely organized and thoroughly 'user-friendly', Solving the Reading Riddle is an ideal Library Science curriculum textbook and a highly recommended addition to academic Library Science reference collections and professional reading lists." - Midwest Book Review
"Librarians have always promoted reading, usually emphasizing "good reads." In today's environment, librarians need to participate more centrally in reading instruction. Leveraging her reading and public librarian experience, author Soltan provides background information about reading instruction and suggests ways for librarians to get involved. Basically, she advocates a balanced reading-instruction approach of rich materials and reading skills (e.g., phonics, comprehension strategies, etc.). She describes a sampling of intervention programs and leveling processes. In her strongest chapter, Soltan suggests ways for librarians to serve as reading advocates and provides several lists of specialized children's books (e.g., pattern stories, graphic novels for struggling readers). She also describes ways to coach family reading activities and work with educators. The book ... has some useful ideas, particularly for working with families." - Booklist Online
