"I appreciate that the authors see literacy leaders as more than just the reading teacher, but as anyone in the school who wants to make a difference in the literacy lives of students."
- Carolyn Carlson, Washburn University
"I liked this book very much, and would recommend to others, particularly teachers who are transitioning to leadership roles. It is filled with the kind of information that makes one say, "I wish someone had told me that!"
