Review:

"This is a rich resource for those interested in peer tutoring and a clear window into a specific type of peer work for those committed to deepening their understanding of the power of cooperation for learning. One thing that makes this book paticularly powerful is that each author’s work has been detailed, sustained, and extensive. A second is that the three authors speak about peer tutoring from the point of view of projects from three different cultural, social, and linguistic contexts." - Lynda Baloche, International Association for the Study of Cooperation in Education

"The book offers useful strategies for all teachers who want to improve the reading skills of their students through the practice of peer tutoring, a cooperative learning method to manage the diversity of levels in a way that all the students can teach and learn from each other [...] A very interesting and practical book which is written in clear language and well-structured that offers many guidelines and resources on how to effectively implement peer tutoring to improve reading skills." - Mariona Corcelles Seuba, Revista de Educación
