Welcome to the teachers' resources site
These pages are especially for teachers and librarians to assist you in the promotion and teaching of literature in schools and to help foster a love of good books and reading in children. Novels, non-fiction, class set suggestions, teacher reference books, books for preschoolers: you'll find them all here.
It is our aim to help you in the classroom so in this section you will find teachers' notes for over 70 of our books, book reviews by other teachers, book-linked activities for the classroom and lots more.

We are always adding new posters so do check back often to see who's in the gallery. If there is an author you are interested in who isn't featured, send us an email with your suggestion of who you would like to see a poster of.
