Books to go with lessons

You already know about the importance of reading aloud to children. Let our Books for Storytime search strategy be your guide to finding the perfect book for your next read-aloud.

Have a goal to add more diversity to your lessons? Try this guide to Finding Books with Diverse Characters.

Exploring the world with your students? NoveList can help you discover books by culture or place. Check out both our Discover Books Based on Culture or Place video and our Exploring Books By Culture search strategy to find the perfect literary trip for your kids.

Connecting books to lessons isn't just about finding the right books for kids; sometimes it's about finding the right resources for teachers. Core Collections can help you find recommended resources for educators to add to your collection. 

Making it fun

Want to get the kids in your class involved in their own search for books? We have a fun scavenger hunt for that.

Working with younger kids? Take a little time to watch our archived webcast on Effective STEM and STEAM programs for 3-4 Year Olds.

For kids who would love a chance to talk with or hear from their favorite author, NoveList Plus now includes PBS Books videos. And there are more than 700 of them! Videos range from author interviews to readings from their work to answering funny questions, such as their favorite pizza toppings. You can find all these videos by searching ND Multimedia Content or TA PBS Books
