Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite
Classics: Why We Should Encourage Children to Read Them is a non-fiction educational work written by Fiza Pathan. Pathan is an educator and author who attributes much of her career success to a broad base of classics reading, both as a child and an adult. She discusses the books that made the biggest impact on her personally and includes suggested reading lists for boys and girls. She argues that classics exercise the imagination and build a firm base for learning and living. Pathan bases much of her work as a teacher of English on the classics, but she shows how reading the classics can impact a child’s performance in other academic disciplines. She shares with the reader her strategies for getting kids interested in classics, which include reading selected chapters aloud to her class, playing movies based on classic works, and having her students perform dramatic vignettes from their favorite stories.

Again congratulations on your Eric Hoffer Book Award distinction, and we wish you continued success in the future. The Eric Hoffer Award was created to promote writers, authors, and independent presses. Please consider sending entries in future years.
That’s right! My book Classics: How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them, has received Honourable Mention, in E-Book Nonfiction category at the 2015 Eric Hoffer Awards.
The Eric Hoffer Award for books and short prose honours the memory of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer by highlighting salient writing, as well as the independent spirit of small publishers. Since its inception, the Eric Hoffer Book Award has become one of the largest international awards for small, academic, and independent presses.
I am honoured to receive such a prestigious award. What touched me even more was the critique of my book on The US Review of Books website which covers these awards. The US Review of Books supports the Eric Hoffer Project by publishing the results of the annual Eric Hoffer Award for Books. The Eric Hoffer Award is judged by a separate panel, under direction of the Eric Hoffer Project.
To quote the critique: Classics: How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them, Fiza Pathan, CreateSpace
We all want (or should want) the kids to read. It expands their minds, as well as their potential creativity, in unrivaled ways, but getting them to read the classics is another task altogether. Pathan, an experienced teacher, understands that individual book tastes varies as much as the books themselves. She tries to build excitement and make her students want to read them. Her guide provides methods for introducing the classics that can be applied to most other books and cover both the classroom and home. Calling upon various multimedia aids, lecture techniques, and old-fashion fun, Pathan’s comprehensive, multi-approach guide is destined to become a classic reference for the classics themselves.
