Other Helpful Links
(See the eResource IHS Library website
for many more helpful sites!!)
For Students:
These links will help you find books you want to read and things like videos about or by the author. I love the videos and audio recordings of the author reading part of their book, too. If you find an interesting book we don't have yet, I'll order it!
 
 
teachingbooks.net
 
This website has so many ways to find good books! You can search by topic or just find books by exploring different lists. One of my favorite lists is the "Reluctant Reader" list. It has so many fun books! Please explore, find a great book, and let me know if we don't have a book you want to read! - Ms. Whitehouse

      

      

For Teachers:
One-stop resources for books you are teaching or encouraging students to read. The resources include author and illustrator interviews, lesson plans, and other enrichment content.
