    "Bringing Words to Life is, without doubt, one of the best and most influential books ever published on the topic of
    teaching and developing vocabulary. The second edition is even better than the first--it addresses recent issues such as
    the Common Core and RTI; provides a greater number of helpful, practical examples; addresses vocabulary and writing;
    takes on the challenge of providing effective vocabulary instruction for struggling readers and English learners; and
    offers guidance for teaching math, science, and social studies vocabulary in the intermediate grades. This book should
    be required reading for anyone seeking teacher or reading specialist certification."--John Pikulski, PhD, Department of
    Educational Development (Emeritus), University of Delaware

    "This is a book teachers will read, reread, and refer to many times to nurture a love of language through joyful, robust
    vocabulary instruction. The authors' research-based insights and advice about selecting words and systematically
    presenting them to learners from all backgrounds are both practical and manageable. Teachers will delight in nurturing a
    language-rich classroom where students revel in language, read better and deeper, speak effectively, and write with
    purpose and clarity."--Mary Anne Rossbach, MEd, sixth-grade teacher, Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools

    "It's hard to believe, but the second edition of Bringing Words to Life is even more comprehensive than the first. Beck,
    McKeown, and Kucan have outdone themselves. Containing real-life examples and easy-to-implement strategies, this book is
    a 'must have' for vocabulary instruction. It will help teachers greatly as they work to meet the Common Core
    Standards."--Nancy Betler, EdD, Talent Development Facilitator, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, North Carolina; Adjunct
    Professor, School of Graduate and Continuing Education, Wingate University

    "Perhaps the most distinctive feature of this book is its personal touch--reading it is like having a conversation with
    the authors about robust vocabulary instruction. The authors share their decision making, offer warnings about potential
    challenges, encourage thoughtful planning, and insist on follow-through. Teachers are amply supported in their learning
    by the 'Your Turn' and 'You Try It' features, whether working on their own or in a course on literacy instruction. This
    is a book designed by teachers for teachers."--Joanne F. Carlisle, PhD, School of Education, University of Michigan

    "The book offers elementary, middle, and high school teachers concrete suggestions for choosing words and teaching them
    to students. New chapters in the second edition provide important updates for teachers who are data driven, who have
    students of varying ability levels and language backgrounds, and who focus on the reading-writing connection. Like the
    first edition, this book will make a significant contribution to teacher preparation and professional development.
    Specific recommendations for practice are illustrated with detailed examples of teachers implementing robust vocabulary
    instruction in their classrooms."--Rebecca Silverman, EdD, College of Education, University of Maryland, College Park
