If you have written or illustrated a children’s or YA trade book, we’d like to share it with the students and teachers we serve. When you participate, you’ll be getting the word out about your book to teachers and librarians at more than 30,000 schools!
Here’s how you can participate to ensure educators can find out more about you and your book on TeachingBooks.net:
1. Submit links for resources about your book(s), such as:
- The link for your website and/or blog
- Links or PDF files to any reading guides or lesson plans about your book, including ideas on how to use your book in a classroom
- Links to webpages on which one can hear audio excerpts of your book being read
- Links to any audio, video, or written interviews with you about your book.
- Link or video file to a book trailer video (no YouTube or Vimeo links please, many schools are unable to play access them in their classrooms)
We will review these materials for possible inclusion in the TeachingBooks.net database.
Please email your links to katie AT teachingbooks DOT net
2. Submit your headshot to be displayed on TeachingBooks.net
Upload your headshot. Within 4-6 weeks we will display your headshot next to information about your books on TeachingBooks.net.
3. Record an audio clip about your name for the Author Name Pronunciation Guide!
The Author Name Pronunciation Guide is an online audio collection of authors and illustrators pronouncing and sharing stories about their names. Your audio message will help students and teachers connect to your books in a new way.
