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.

Now that you have had a couple of weeks to settle back into the school routine we thought it was time to focus a spotlight on those of our titles that we think are perfect for your classroom or library. First cab off the rank is Parvana – A Graphic Novel. Based on the Oscar-nominated animated feature, The Breadwinner (which, in turn, is based on Deborah Ellis’ novel, Parvana) Parvana – A Graphic Novel features an innovative mix of 2-D animated artwork with acrylic and digitally painted environments, as well as digital paper cut–out segments, and opens this remarkably popular story of life under the Taliban up to an even wider audience of students. While very different (and harrowing) Armin Greder’s visual masterpiece, The Mediterranean, is another book we recommend for classrooms and libraries (secondary) because its stark images are guaranteed to encourage passionate discussion and debate about one of the most important issues of our time.
