    - Jessica from California

  • "In the past, I have searched the internet for ideas to present various literature books. Now, I see there is one place—! When TeachingBooks has a Book Guide, it's more convenient to use this one database—especially since the Book Guides also have Book Readings and About the Author info in the same location."
