Motivating young students to read is instrumental for the development of strong information literacy and communication skills, as well as for building a lifelong habit of seeking information and enjoyment through written materials. The authors of PERSONALIZED READING: IT'S A PIECE OF PIE are three highly experienced teachers, one of whom is a school librarian. This text describes the steps of the pie program in detail, including chapters on selecting a book, reading it, writing about it, and extending beyond that title. Utilizing the pie program will teach students to make selections at an appropriate reading level, expand from choosing titles in the same genre or from the same author, and recognize and abandon a book of low interest to them. Within each chapter are explanations of the theories behind each step and practical ideas that teachers and librarians can implement collaboratively in the classroom and library.
