Resources for Teachers & Librarians

Learning materials for the classroom have been developed for many of our books. There are links below which will take you to individual pages for the learning materials related to each of those books.

Teachers of younger children should also look at our "Activities" page which has links to coloring pages from some of our books, which may be useful in a child's early learning stages.

We encourage sharing and collaboration in the instructional community (which includes librarians, of course!). Teachers, librarians, or other mentors are welcome to write to us at webmaster@wisdomtalespress.com suggestions or reports of ideas that you have tried out and that have been successful. We will be happy to include these on this site for all to share.
