Exploring the Affective Side of the Reading Life!

The Gift of Story: Exploring the Affective Side of the Reading Life, the professional book of my heart, is celebrating a book birthday today! It explores the value of sharing stories in ways that speak to our hearts and connect learning communities. It grounds this affective work in a discussion of five affective elements of story―healer, inspiration, clarifier, compassion, and connector―and includes narrative discussions, rationale, and contributions from expert educators and children’s book creators along with tons of book recommendations and suggestions for direct classroom and library connections.



Stenhouse, the wonderful publisher of The Gift of Story, is offering an additional 10% off professional books in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week from May 1 through May 8. Use the code TY2022 at checkout. Thank you!
