“A highlight of Struggling Readers is Rog’s accessible and engaging writing style. She meshes research with classroom experiences in a way that feels like you are having a conversation with her rather than reading a professional book. As I read Struggling Readers, I was struck by how explicit is it: Rog has clear and specific strategies to help struggling readers. These strategies are presented clearly in a way that is doable for a busy teacher working with the diverse needs of a classroom. Also, as the excerpt states, these strategies are good strategies for all readers. Struggling Readers is a win for everybody.” (CM Review)
