Youth Guides & Pathfinders
Focused on a specific topic, our subject guides and pathfinders can help you discover the resources you need.
The election season is almost upon us so it might be a good time to have your students brush up on some presidential history. Michael Townsend has created a hilarious, yet very informative graphic novel about our presidents. Students will love the sometimes weird, but always interesting fun facts that range from presidential pets to what the president does all day. (Grades 4-9 School Library Journal)
Shrouded in fantasy, the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, North Carolina vividly comes to life in Serafina and the Black Cloak, exciting young readers about American history. Names like Vanderbilt jump off the page mingling with despicable villians and a magical forest. Get your students interested in history through this fictional twist on a very real past. Grades 6-8.
Teaching Shakespeare this year? Do your students need motivation to delve into the Elizabethan world for a project? Consider World of Shakespeare Reference Book. As a picture book for middles, teens and adults, the book contains fun images and inticing facts in an easy-to-use format, without the overwhelming drama of a Shakespeare play. Grades 6-12.
