    This review is from: Classics: Why we should encourage children to read them (Kindle Edition)
    I found this book great fun and motivational to read and think others will too. Fiza Pathan states her case with passion, personality and precision.It is based on her own teaching experience, feedback from her students and their success stories. The book is full of wise, easy-to-follow tips, lists and examples.Teachers will want to try out her original techniques for stimulating English classes. Parents and grandparents will rush to the book store, or upload their e-readers with free classics. New insights show how to help children see the sky’s the limit, get better grades, be articulate in writing and conversing, and grow up to be happy people. Pathan`s prescription of reading a classic once a week (or at least once a month) is one I’m ready to take. At 23 years of age, Pathan is on a roll with this her third book. She lives in Mumbai, India and reflects the vibrant, booming environment there for readers and writers. This book is only 90 pages long but can do a lot to rejuvenate not just literacy but humanity also.

    A Great Guide for Students, Parents and Teachers, July 20, 2013
    By 

    It was a real pleasure to read Fiza Pathan’s book. She is enthusiastic about this topic and with good reason, as the success of her students show. Teacher colleagues have the benefit to use her techniques for stimulation of their English classes.

    Reading a classic book per week is a surefire way of improving student’s (and maybe parents?) English writing and conversion style – challenged by today’s SMS (short messages)usage.

    I liked her quote: “Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind”. That was for me the essence of her work in class rooms and in writing this guide for students and educators.

    I am thankful for the helpful, well-rounded list of classic books and their authors in the Bibliography part at the end of her book. Quite a few of them are free as their copyright already expired – good news for parents and teachers – and everyone else who is interested in our rich classic literature. To all of them: I whole-heartily recommend Fiza Pathan’s book, it is a pleasure to read these lively persuasion in a non-fiction book.

    BTW, it is available as e-book too: B00DUVZ3GW
