This is a great collection of books, that has a website to support them. The website gives you resources or ideas to further explore each book. It also gives you various classroom ideas or online activities that go along with each book. I used two books last year with my Year 3 class. When you have students spending their lunch time to go and borrow the books you have been reading in class, you know you are on a winner.
