Connecting K-6 Teachers With Great Books

My goal is to create a resource for teachers, home schoolers and anyone interested in quality books for children. Each title is one I have carefully evaluated and selected to support curriculum as well as your class read-alouds. Elementary school librarians are losing their jobs nationwide resulting in the loss of this valuable resource for students and teachers. I have 35 years experience working with kids and their books, so you can consider me your personal librarian!

New categories and titles will be added weekly. You can submit comments, suggestions and curricular areas for which you need resources. Share books that you have had success with.
Start a dialogue!
