Literacy is the foundation of education and UNESCO sets aside September 8 to promote it as a human right. This year, International Literacy Day focuses on "Literacies for the 21st Century" to highlight the need for basic literacy skills and the importance of advanced skills to help navigate our modern world. Help develop your students' reading skills and their interest in lifelong learning using our collection of resources based on award-winning books. We have lessons that bring books into your science classroom and interviews with the authors.
