Our Literacy team of former classroom educators develops teacher’s guides for each and every book we publish. That’s more than 900 free, high-quality resources, offering extensive teaching ideas, curricular connections, and activities that can be adapted to many different educational settings.
We also bring our authors & illustrators into the process. Their feedback is vital to ensure that the content included is the best it can be. Check out their rave reviews, then download the guides to use with your readers!
