These newsletters are designed to provide educators, librarians and parents with strategies, tips and information to accompany our fiction and non-fiction Groundwood books. Each newsletter is on a single topic, theme or genre with a list of recommended titles that will encourage young readers to explore and engage with the theme. The series will include lots of great resources such as reading, writing, arts and media responses; a spotlight feature on a Groundwood author/illustrator; a curated book list with brief annotations; and additional links to the Groundwood website for more book information and/or teacher guides.
