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.

Make your July school holidays even more enjoyable by catching up with wonderful new novels from some of Australia’s finest children’s and YA authors. If you are a fan of beautiful writing and stories set in the ancient world you’ll be delighted by Wendy Orr’s Swallow’s Dance. But if your tastes run to something more contemporary and humorous you can’t go past Barry Jonsberg’s A Song Only I Can Hear. And for aficionados of quality picture books we have Margaret Wild’s remarkably moving Chalk Boy and Kate and Jol Temple’s hilarious Are You My Bottom. Finally, ALL teachers are encouraged to read Gabbi Stroud’s amazing Teacher – a powerful and moving memoir about how our education system is letting down students, parents and breaking dedicated teachers.
