Lee & Low Books is committed to supporting educators and families in their virtual, distance, and/or home learning as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis and its long-term impact on education. Whether you are a teacher, a homeschooling parent, or a librarian, you'll find educator resources on this page to support your work as well as answers to our most commonly asked questions regarding distance learning.
Are you looking to build a diverse home library for your family? Adapted from our incredibly popular Classroom Library Questionnaire, our new Home Library Questionnaire is a helpful guide that encourages parents and caregives to broaden the types of books you read at home and to choose diverse books wisely. Use it, download it, and share it!
During this critical time, Lee & Low is granting special permission to allow educators to do a virtual recording or videotaping of our titles for non-commercial purposes. To read our full guidelines and submit your Virtual Read Aloud event, click here.
