During this period of school closures, children’s authors, illustrators, editors, and publishers have offered many resources to assist in teaching and learning. In response to educators’ needs and in an effort to helpfully curate this emerging content (as well as preexisting resources), the Children’s Literature Assembly(CLA) of the National Council of Teachers of English has started a twice-weekly blog to support preK–grade 12 and university educators as they share children’s literature with their students in all classroom contexts. Each entry highlights an online resource available for teachers and explains how the resource might be used effectively, or offers a description of a short lesson incorporating children’s literature that educators can use in their newly located classes. The CLA Blog is freely available to the public. New entries are posted every Tuesday and Thursday at noon.
