of early reading problems on people’s lives. Determined to aid her struggling college students, she helped establish an alternate school on campus and subsequently developed a highly effective classroom approach that bolstered her students’ weak reading and writing skills and repaired their mangled self-esteem. When she became a mother, Newman used this same approach with her three sons. Though two of her sons struggled with reading, all three of her children became skilled, avid readers and dazzling students. School administrators invited Newman to share her “secrets” with other parents and teachers, and since 1995, she has lectured to thousands of parents, grandparents, and educators in a variety of settings, including the New York Public Library, Barnes & Noble, YMHA, Citibank, and Colgate Palmolive Corporation. She has also given talks at a wide range of schools such as the Collegiate School, Chapin School, Trinity School, St. David’s School, and Marymount School, as well as nursery schools and public schools in the New York tristate area. Born and raised on Long Island, NY, Newman received a BA and MA in English Literature from the City University of New York. Her well-reviewed first novel, Disturbing the Peace, was published by HarperCollins in 2002. Raising Passionate Readers is her second book. Nancy Newman lives with her family in New York City.
When neuroscientists cracked the mystery of reading in the 1980s, they pinpointed the simple steps parents can take to help all children become skilled, avid readers. Yet this information still hasn’t spread from the research community to the general public, leaving a huge gap between what scientists have learned and parents know about raising readers. Though many parents are concerned about their children’s reading abilities, they have no idea how to help their children become readers. And they commonly believe that it is impossible to raise readers because of competition from technology. Bridging the gap between scientists and busy parents by combining the latest scientific research with what she has learned as a teacher and mother, author Nancy Newman offers a simple, practical, and joyful approach that boosts children's literacy skills and instills an enduring love of reading. Using accessible, parent-friendly language, realistic examples of family life, and humor, this indispensable guide translates neuroscience into common sense, and provides easy, effective, everyday strategies that can be adapted to a wide range of families, personalities, and schedules. Everyone who wants to encourage children to become lifelong fans of the written word—parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, and learning specialists—will be inspired, informed, and empowered.
