To accept the notion "A love of good reading is more likely to be caught than taught," 1 is to contradict the claim "good books must be introduced to pupils in ways which help them to read with increasing ability to analyze and interpret and evaluate." Such a notion is also contrary to the statement, "The only ceiling on effective ways of bringing books and people together is the creative imagination of the adult who is the guide." Yet, these three quotes are taken from the same article-the first and third quotes having been juxtaposed and classified as a summary of "many books describing many techniques for reading guidance."
