Thematic Index

The thematic index will provide annotated lists of books  by theme, or subject. Many of these themes will have both fiction and nonfiction books for children of all ages from preschool to grade 12. The thematic index will make it easy for parents and educators to find books to use in preparing unit or thematic studies or to supplement what ever curriculum is being used.

Parents can use these pages to find books on subjects that interest their children or to give them background to interest them in places the family may be planning to visit. If books on a certain theme are listed under another tab, I will link to them  here.

I have also included some teacher resource books when they have lesson plans and resources to use for various themes.

Books on these lists may have only annotations to describe them or they may have full reviews.
