Key Features


When young children are immersed in joyful and engaging shared reading experiences
throughout the day, something wonderful happens. They learn to love books, enjoy
reading, and see themselves as readers. They also gain basic reading skills and
knowledge, which prepares them for successful reading instruction.

But how do you create those kinds of experiences? This book shows you. Eric Litwin
and Gina Pepin give you what you need to transform your classroom into a “reading
playground”-a space in which children read along to, sing to, dance to, and celebrate
words and texts. A space in which they experience the power of joyful reading.

Includes 1 professional book and online resource site.


“The Joyful Reading Approach
is Eric Litwin and Gina Pepin’s
answer to one of the most critical
educational crises of our time: the
loss of joy in literacy education.
This research- and theory-based
approach works seamlessly
alongside any purposeful reading
and writing curriculum in early
childhood classrooms.”

– Dr. Lisa Pinkerton,
Marie Clay Endowed Chair in
Reading Recovery and Early
Literacy, The Ohio State University

“In this readable book, Eric Litwin
and Gina Pepin remind us that
learning to read is something that
is taught and something that that
should be joyfully experienced.
Reading should be more than
a skill or competency—much
more. It should add to our
humanity and touch our hearts.
Eric and Gina show us the way.”

– Dr. Timothy V. Rasinski,
Professor of Literacy Education,
Kent State University, and author
of The Megabook of Fluency

“As a pediatrician who believes
in the power of Reach Out and
Read, I’m convinced that the
Joyful Reading Approach is a
vital element of raising a happy,
healthy child.”

– Dr. Sabrina Middleton,
pediatrician, Seattle, Washington
