Pledger Consulting, 2017. ISBN 9781876678531
Recommended as a teacher reference for both Junior and Senior School libraries and English faculties. This teacher resource book makes the book selection work of Teacher Librarians and English teachers much easier. It contains summaries of books organised under themes consistent with the Australian curriculum: Asian themes; indigenous themes, sustainability themes, poetry books, books suitable for class sets and read alouds.
Within each heading, books are also grouped under 3 student year level groupings: reception to year 3; years 4-6 and years 7-10.
Summaries indicate if teacher notes are available on the publisher website.
Most titles have been published within the last 5 years and there is a useful author index.
While the summaries are brief, there is sufficient for teachers to decide whether to seek further information on a title. According to Pat Pledger, Editor 'Most have been recommended by reviewers for ReadPlus and reviews are available at http://www.readplus.com.au/reviewsindex.html'
