"The Glencoe Literature Library site offers a great collection of Study Guides for lots of popular books for young readers, including titles from “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” through “The Yearling” and dozens in between. Each guide is a 10-20 page PDF guide that includes a description and discussion of the novel or play, a list of its related readings, background information and reproducible activity pages for students. A great resource for your literature studies!"

These are great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Even if all you do is peruse them for some background on the author and setting.  I like them a lot.  They have some great things for notebooking.

 

Thanks,

Darn! They don't have Kon Tiki! I am supposed to lead a book discussion group on this in a month with a bunch of teens....

Otherwise looks like a comprehensive list!

Mindy, I see from your blog that you enjoy books Wink  LOL, totally tongue in cheek there.  Anyway, wanted to tell you about Free Book Dude, which sends out a daily email of free Kindle books.  The books are handily labled fiction or non-fiction, and the selections include children's books, how-to books, cookbooks, biographies, and much more.  (The October theme is Halloween...if you don't celebrate Halloween, just look past the graphics or don't subscribe until November.  I've picked up some interesting crime drama non-fiction works, and there have been books that haven't had anything at all to do with a sinister theme. I just scan the list and ignore what doesn't interest me.)
