Would you try another book from Donalyn Miller and/or Sean Runnette and Hillary Huber ?
I would try another from Miller but Huber's narration left a lot to be desired.
Would you recommend The Book Whisperer to your friends? Why or why not?
Teachers of reading may be interested or at least those who are inclined to be creative with their classrooms and give their students a space for freedom of reading.
What didn’t you like about Sean Runnette and Hillary Huber ’s performance?
Runnette wasn't bad. It was Huber whose performance sounded almost robotic at times. If I wanted a robotic performance I would have bought a Kindle ebook and then allow the device to read to me.
Was The Book Whisperer worth the listening time?

Do You Want to Inspire Kids to Be Readers?
If you could sum up The Book Whisperer in three words, what would they be?
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Book Whisperer?
The author made a very strong case that reading books we love creates readers. This fundamentally changed how my classroom operated. I saw the evidence that even my "low" students could become glued to the pages of a book they chose. The day that one of my struggling students handed me a page and said, "Read this, Mrs. K., isn't it just about the saddest thing you ever read?" was a day that I knew without a doubt that Donalyn Miller's insights were spot on.
