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.

The 2019 school year kicks-off with some ideal new books for classroom study and library shelves. Following on from last year’s phenomenally successful How to Bee, we have Bren MacDibble’sThe Dog Runner, an ideal text for Years 4-8 combining elements of the classic survival story with fascinating ideas about modern farming and its impact on our environment. And to make in-class study easier we have Teacher Tips available HERE. In the picture books for older readers category we have The House on the Mountain: the story of one family’s experience of a devastating bushfire, their loss and eventual renewal. This remarkably sensitive and beautiful book will open discussions with students about an increasingly common natural disaster. Teacher Tips are available HERE. And do have a look at Wrestle!, a fun look at the way young children explore identity with important themes of diversity and masculinity thrown in.
