Read and Soar

I love reading and paradise for me is getting the kids to bed early and settling
down in front of the fire place to read a good book. I love to suck out the life and
marrow from a good book like a dog with a juicy bone. There is nothing that I
enjoy ...

‘A truly inspirational book, full of very quotable quotes about books and reading. Very readable, it makes an ideal handbook for parents, with hints and tips on how to motivate children to read. It also considers ways in which reading empowers the individual and the benefits of reading to health and wellbeing. A treasure chest of ideas for those working with children and young people, it will ring many bells with professionals who seek to promote reading in all its aspects.’ Delyth Humphreys, National Year of Reading 2008 Wales Coordinator ‘This book is full of reasons why reading is a must for all –babies, children and adults. Reading will extend our imagination, bring our dreams to life and enrich our vocabulary. In the first seven chapters, the author draws on extensive research to answer our questions on ‘why read’? The quotes on reading, including those of great men and women through the ages further gives credence to the fact that reading has always been recognized as a quality and life changing activity for everyone. Chapters 8 and 9 tackle the all important challenge of getting our children and youth to read. Many parents and carers have run out of reasons and explanations to encourage their youngsters to read. Like me, you should memorize every word in this section and thus armed, return to battle. The results this time will be amazing.’ Esther Okwok, College Librarian, London ‘The author makes an impassioned plea to you through these pages to take reading seriously. She reminds us of how reading has the potential to shape and enhance our thinking, to guide us, people of all ages, to achieve our full potential. In this modern age of electronic entertainment, a challenge comes to pick up books and improve ourselves and our children. This is a wonderfully refreshing voice against the backdrop of 24-7 T.V.’ Graham Reilly, Primary School Teacher, Sidcup Kent Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.

From a respected educator who has advised Hillary Clinton and Cory Booker on scholastic issues, a “rare book that can bring tears to your eyes while showing the way to deep and meaningful social change” (New York Times bestselling author William Pollack). David Banks knows a few things about at-risk boys. In 2004, he petitioned New York City’s mayor to allow an all-boys public school to open in one of the most troubled districts in the country, the South Bronx. He had a point to prove: when rituals that boys are innately drawn to are combined with college prep-level instruction and community mentorship, even the most challenging students can succeed. The result? The Eagle Academy for Young Men—the first all-boys public high school in New York City in more than thirty years—has flourished and has been successfully replicated in other boroughs and states. In Soar, Banks shares the experiences of individual kids from the Eagle Academy as well as his own personal story. He reveals the specific approach he and his team use to drive students, from tapping into their natural competitiveness and peer-sensitivity, to providing rituals that mimic their instinctual need for hierarchy and fraternal camaraderie, to finding teachers who know firsthand the obstacles these students face. Results-oriented and clear-eyed about the challenges and promises of educating boys at risk, Soar is “a must-read for those concerned with the welfare of young men” (Kirkus Reviews).
