2014 Teaching Resource

We are writing the 2014 Teaching Resource in instalments. The first five exhibitors have their teaching resource already in the book. From 20th February the next five exhibitors will have theirs added. The final five will be added on 20th March.  We have two extra exhibitors who are also joining us and we'll slot theirs in once they join the exhibit. So please do keep coming to this site and download the next instalment.

We are also going to include advertisements from companies that are book/school minded. For example, New Holland Publishers, Scholastic, South Pacific Books, and Duck Creek Press - showcasing their latest books. Plus Rosemary Tisdall's speaker agency 'Getting Kids into Books'.

If you would like to advertise in our teaching resource please contact mariagill at ihug.co.nz. The rates are very reasonable and it will be seen by teachers and librarians from schools all around New Zealand.

The advertisement fees pay for our excellent designer to design the teaching resource and creates funds so we can host the Gala evening on Friday 28th March at the National Library. We'll have more information about the Gala night soon.
