Teaching Books is an educational platform that provides reading resources for students to use in the classroom. Its library holds more than 260,000 resources for children’s and young adult books. You can find books by author or title, or browse through archives and catalogs. The site also has many other educational resources to help make reading a enjoyable experience. This includes author-visit videos, book trailers, audiobook performances along with reading, discussion questions, vocabulary lists, and more.
Writers and illustrators offer a variety of recordings and short films so that students can learn directly from the authors and develop personal relationships with the text. Teaching books “provide each reader with a vast library of literature that basically enriches the relationship with every book they are reading”.
Reading material on teaching books can be used to support literacy education. There are many tools that support this goal: standard additions, various book toolkits, reader advice, library programming, literary calendars, authors pronouncing their names, and more. Access to reading resources on teaching books can be shared with anyone, and no sign-up is required to access shared content.
