Welcome!! We’ve created this page to serve as a resource for PreK-12 teachers and librarians hoping to learn more about teaching with high quality children’s and young adult literature.

By using the drop-down menu at the top of the page, you can:

  • find out about our books
  • watch webinars we’ve recorded
  • read articles that we’ve written
  • follow the blogs we contribute to (our Teaching with Text Sets blog can also be found below)
  • learn even more about trade books by scrolling through the links to major children’s and young adult book awards and “best of” lists.
