Get inspired by Children's Literature! Teach citizenship, kindness and admirable character traits. 45 quotes by famous children's book authors. Artistic flair so they will be eye-catching in your classroom. There are 45 quotes (presently). I will be adding more and you will get FREE updates for life. My goal is 100 quotes. These quotes are easy to download and print and each one measures 8" x 8" ... will print on standard size paper. I recommend card stock for durability.

You can glean so many good thoughts and insights from reading children's literature. I am on the look out to catch some good quotes and present them as [classroom rules and ways]....

So far I have quoted from Charlotte's Web, Anne of Green Gables, The Giving Tree, Winnie the Pooh, The Phantom Tollbooth, Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl, The Little Prince, Beverly Cleary, Marcus Pfister, Judith Voirst, Thomas Edison, Aesop, Eric Carle, Jan Brett, Jane Austen, Chinese Proverbs... and more.

Take a look at the preview... and remember there are 45 quotes from literature now but there will be many more added.

Thank you for previewing this teaching resource .
