The Book and Beyond: Guides for educators and students

The Book and Beyond: An educator’s guide contains a collection of powerful, relevant and critical prompts for approaching books and book chats, helping teachers and librarians:

  • explore children's and young adult literature and the reading experience
  • captivate and develop student imagination, spark curiosity and inquiry
  • increase their understanding of the world and the human experience
  • create a personal connection with a book — the story and the physical object
  • engage them with reading and writing.
