Knowing Julie professionally as I do, I sense her teacher voice in the words of this book, and the passion for her subject shines through on each page. She marries practice with pedagogy with ease, drawing upon her years of experience and of reflection of what works well in the classroom. I have seen Julie putting these words into action in the years before she put them into print.

This book is essential reading for all passionate teachers. It is beneficial for both experienced teachers in providing up-to-date best practice recommendations and for new teachers, to guide them through a seemingly complicated process in a gentle, manageable way. Julie clearly explains all elements of teaching reading, supported by relevant international research, in a friendly, approachable manner.

This easy-to-read, yet thoroughly comprehensive and informative, book academically outlines through the eyes of a mum, educator and literacy consultant the many areas of classroom practice and interventions that will ‘shift’ your students. Julie dives deep into the science of reading and other research-backed practices to provide educators with a useable handbook to drive learning. Implementing the approaches outlined in this book will result in a significant improvement in reading achievement. For schools like ours that are prioritising the provision of research-based high-quality reading instruction and intervention across all grades, it is a must-read.
