"Fourth grade is ground zero in the fierce debates about education reform in America. It's when kids (well, some of them) make the shift from 'learning to read' to 'reading to learn, ' and tomes have been written about the fourth-grade year by educators, administrators, philosophers, and pundits. Now ... Inda Schaenen adds the voices of actual fourth-grade kids to the conversation"--
