Finding the best children's books and activities to support student learning across the curriculum can be overwhelming for teachers. At times, you can feel bombarded with ideas, strategies, and materials, each claiming to hold the key to your success—usually for a substantial fee. In this chapter, Stiles provides an overview of the professional organizations, resources, booklists, awards, and other tips that can help teachers access and use the best literature for children. Particular emphasis is on nonfiction and informational texts, and Web resources that support active, inquiry-based learning are highlighted.
