Literature Guides

Teach generosity and philanthropy through shared reading

The shared experience of reading a book is powerful in many ways. Children learn reading, listening, and comprehension skills, while together you celebrate the joys and sorrows that good literature presents. Literature brings us closer and introduces real issues and broadens experience in a safe environment.

This Reading Tutor Guide provides tips for reading with a child. Search the literature guides for Picture Books and Teen Novels or click the individual links below.

Reading with someone younger or older is an opportunity for developing relationships and respect across generations or grade levels!
