The Book Whisperer--and a poem

I recently read the Book Whisperer this summer.  I loved the book, and I would love to teach literature as a reader's workshop!  She totally ditched the idea of book reports.  I think this poem might explain:

Book Report, poem by Carol Diggory Shields

You can find this wonderful poem here!  Instead she would have the children write book reviews.  More on that soon!
