Welcome to Junior Primary Library

One of the most extensive children’s fiction book resource websites, for use by children in the classroom/Library.

I am a retired Primary School Librarian with experience in both West Australian and UK Schools. I designed this site (a separate site from this one) to help teachers and librarians find book resources links.
I have seen first hand the problems teachers/librarians had, trying to find resources for a particular book they were reading with their class in the library or classroom.  Also, allowing students to access their favourite author’s/illustrator’s website, which when searching for, often brought up incorrect pages or included undesireable, Facebook/Twitter accounts and blogs.

The site consists of links to over 5,000 resources, including over 1,500 of JUST Picture Book/Early Readers resource links.

The book links will take teachers and students direct to the activities or website.  The site has been designed "child friendly" around a group of aliens, so it can be integrated easily into the curriculum for all years from Nursery to Year 6.  I also have 2 sets of worksheets for Nursery/Kindy-Yr3 and Yr4-Yr6, for students to do a book review and research their favourite author or illustrator.

The resources are broken down into separate modules, as below:

There are at present over 1,000 author & illustrator website links

Links that take children straight to their favourite author or illustrator’s website without using a search engine, which could take them to an unrelated page i.e. Facebook, Twitter etc.

Each link clearly shows the country that they are from, to assist the child in choosing an author to research, from their own country.
See below where the authors and illustrators are from and how many there are:

United Kingdom - 360+
