Book Links has been helping librarians, teachers and parents connect children with high-quality books for nearly 20 years. Like the stated TeachingBooks.net goal, it aims to “help students read more . . . and enjoy it.” This practical, easy-to-use magazine puts a new spin on how to introduce books to capture and hold children's interest. It includes reviews of new titles, articles that tie books to national standards and thematic bibliographies, offering a one-stop resource for librarians and teachers who want all the teaching sources on a subject at their fingertips.

TeachingBooks.net is a time-saving portal to thousands of online resources that support exploring children's and young adult books and their authors--from David Macaulay to J.K. Rowling, from Dr. Seuss to Shakespeare. It provides immediate access to useful materials and programs (short movies, audio book readings, book discussion guides and more) that add a multimedia dimension to reading in the classroom, library, and home, bringing authors into the picture at any time. It specializes in creating original content with award-winning authors and illustrators to enable users connect with the author the moment they are reading a book — for any subject area they are teaching.
