Review Nonfiction Books  April 2020

NSW Homeschool Teacher/Parent posted:

"My boys really enjoy factual texts or non fiction and this #gifted Easter pack from @theliteracytower has been a popular read. As a teacher and mother I’ve seen many home readers in my time and this company really does produce quality texts that are engaging. At the moment, they’ve released theme and homeschooling packs to help parents. Each text is paired with a teacher/parent guide that takes you through comprehension questions and language features of each page. It makes it so much easier for parents without experience in assisting their child at home. They’ve also released free printable and reading passages on their site which I’ll link in my stories."

Review Fiction Books  March 2020

VIC Teacher emailed:

"The books are AMAZING!!!! So impressive! I have passed them onto our Literacy Coordinator and she just told me that she's 'making an order with you very soon.' You need to know that she's got VERY high expectations and she just said to me that your books (Literacy Tower) were her 'go to and preference.' So that's something I think you should know."

Review Teacher Editions  August 2019

WA Teacher posted on Instagram:

"If your school is anything like mine, your class has readers that you remember as a kid!!!! I know we do! @literacytower kindly sent me some books and I was so impressed with the beautiful photos, quality text and the massive amount of lesson ideas and teacher support in the teacher book. I find guided reading so difficult to teach as there are so many concepts to cover! These teacher books literally spell it out for you with ideas and activities matched to every single page! Genius! Can't wait to show these to our English team!"


Paired fiction – two books with the SAME STORYLINE written from DIFFERENT CHARACTER PERSPECTIVES.
Some are set in 

The Preposterous Problem Parrot (Level 23)
A pet shop owner is having a closing-down sale. All her pets have been sold, except for one parrot (which has learned how to say naughty rhymes). No matter how hard she tries, the pet shop owner cannot find a good home for her problem parrot – until, one day, there is a knock at the door.

Blackspit: The Buccaneer's Birthday (Level 24)
It’s Captain Blackspit’s birthday, and his crew are worried. The grumpy buccaneer didn’t like any of the birthday presents they got him last year – and, although they’ve been to almost every shop in a seaside village, they can’t seem to find the perfect pirate’s present. Will the last shop have anything?

There are two sides to every story ... so why not explore both?
Through paired fiction titles, The Literacy Tower offers young readers the opportunity to delve deeper into a single story – to explore different character personalities, perspectives and motivations. Paired fiction also helps grow students’ understanding of how and why everyone in a story makes a contribution to its eventual outcome.
