Literature Connections

Authors for Kids

Series Lists with QR Codes (last revised 2/19/2013)
Red print means series is incomplete or
that the book hasn't been released.
Simply a visual clue for me to check this
when I order new materials. ;-)

Please feel free to print and attach to your bookshelves for your patrons to scan.

I used Countdown in my book club group.
We then Skyped with Mrs. Wiles and she is absolutely wonderful.
I highly recommend doing this with your students.
Please feel free to use the resources below
to enhance discussion and learning. ;-)
