Kids' Book Review: Teachers' Notes & Lesson Plans Due to the upkeep of this list of teacher/librarians' notes and lesson plans, and the fact that links often break or change, we will only be adding sporadically to the list when notes/plans directly come to hand. In light of this, we have included publisher links to a vast amount of teaching resources, below, which will help you in your search for fabulous teaching material. Every effort is made to provide accurate links, however, if the publisher/book/author website changes or deletes them, some links could appear broken here. Do let us know if you find a broken link so we can delete it from the page. If you are looking for a certain book that is not featured here, we recommend searching the publisher website for the book in question, googling the title along with either 'teaching notes' or 'lesson plans', or contacting the publisher directly to ask if there are any notes available. Most publishers these days are providing this valuable resource.

Of course parents can tell a child that “there’s no iPad until you’ve done your reading.” And, there are many, many high-quality kids book appsavailable that encourage children to read, for some kids reading remains a chore. Look for apps which, while they aren’t books, still require reading.
Public Books Database (Academic titles) With university classrooms and libraries shuttered because of the COVID-19 crisis, scholars are facing disruptions not only in their teaching lives but also in their ability to access research materials.
