    This is a fantastic resource for our teacher candidates to utilise. It contains a great selection of children’s literature but perhaps more importantly provides a variety of models of what excellent book-reading to children should look like.
    Examples include intonation, rhythm, questions, and engaging.

    This is a fantastic resource to early childhood and primary educators as well as for teacher candidates and academics to use in their practice. It provides teacher candidates with an opportunity to integrate ICT and literacy as well as a high-quality resource for classroom use.

    It is an extremely useful resource for academics to provide a diverse range of models of storybook reading. We have used this in Language and Literacy Learning in Children to support teacher candidates to understand the importance of engaging storytelling, identifying vocabulary, modelling ‘storybook talk’ and Conversational Reading (3A) – just as a few examples.
