Welcome to teachers resources page.
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.

Congratulations to Bren MacDibble for taking out this year’s CBCA Book of the Year – Younger Readers Award for the beautiful and fierce How to Bee. Congratulations, too, to Idan Ben-Barak and Julian Frost for their hilariously informative Do Not Lick This Book, winner of the CBCA Book of the Year – Eve Pownall Award. And who could forget the charm of Martine Murray’s Henrietta and the Perfect Night, named an Honour Book in the CBCA Book of the Year – Younger Readers category. But looking ahead we are so excited about our September titles. There’s the delightful Lemonade Jones for emerging readers, a new Paul Jennings book called A Different Boy, and Fairytales for Feisty Girls, a clever and humorous take on fairytales that has each heroine finding STEM ways to save themselves. Lastly, do take a moment to read about one of the most compelling books for older readers you are likely to come across this year, Catching Teller Crow.
