Why do I need ACADEMIC Standards in my Teacher Guide?
Aligning curriculum guides and/or school visit presentation documents with academic standards such as the CCSS, Next Gen Science, or individual state standards demonstrates to educators that you are interested in partnering with them by assisting to prepare students for the rigors of the classroom. Not only are the lessons offered in the guides lively and interesting, the alignment proves that they are academically sound. The ultimate goal of curriculum guides and presentations is that - coupled with the author or illustrator’s enthusiasm for reading, writing, and the arts - a child and their teacher will connect with your books in a lastly and memorable way.

What is the turn-around time for my Guide?
I adhere to a three-month rule. If I can get the guide done ooner, I will! I’ve found that planning on a 90 day turn-around time to be a safe bet.
If you are in an Educational Guide emergency and need an expedited guide, you’re in luck. Email me for more details about pricing and possible timelines.
