How the Guide Works

The Number the Stars Book Guide is a month long literature-based learning guide that walks you through the story with these weekly sections:

  • Read & Explore
    • Weekly chapters to read
    • Story-related learning topics (history, geography, nature, etc.)
  • Expand & Discuss
    • Related reading ideas (poems and picture books)
    • Hands-on activities & project ideas
    • Meaningful discussion questions & prompts
  • Story Celebration Plan
    • Book party ideas for the final week
    • Step-by-step Story Celebration plan

Each book highlighted has been thoughtfully chosen based on the following requirements:

  • Does the story compel readers to connect with characters and their struggles?
  • Does the storytelling allow for meaningful discussions?
  • Does the story inspire readers to desire stronger character?

What others are saying:

I just wanted to thank you for our Number the Stars book guide. Ordinarily I’m a school librarian, but with the change of our entire school’s curriculum to daily online classes in just a few days, we were expected to come up with curriculum – in a hurry – to support our elementary grades.  The Number the Stars packet offered exactly the right amount of history, research, imagination, linking, reflection, and thoughtful writing prompts.  You’ve really created a wonderful teaching program with extraordinary content. I’m very grateful for all your efforts, and am highly recommending your website, book lists, and guides to teachers and parents, both in and outside our school. —Elizabeth

Below are some common download instructions that should help you.

  • Most mobile devices such as phones and tablets, do not allow downloading through a link.
  • All files are sent using PDF format. Most computers have pre-installed Adobe Reader on them, but if your particular laptop, PC, or mobile device does not have a PDF reader, you’ll need one to view the download. Adobe Reader is the most common one and it’s free. You can download it here.
  • If you can’t find the file once it’s downloaded, try looking in Downloads under My Computer or search the title of the file on your computer for where it could be hiding.

Some products are sent using a compressed ZIP file. Here’s how to unzip a ZIP file:

  • On a laptop or PC- Save the ZIP file to your computer, right-click and select, “Extract All.” This creates a new file on your computer in which you can open. From there you can add the file to iCloud or Dropbox to access the files on your mobile device. Occasionally, browser apps may be glitchy during downloading. If this occurs, please try using a different browser.
  • On a mobile device- Before downloading the ZIP file directly to your mobile device, you may need a free app to unzip the product (try FileExplorer Free). This allows you to unzip the folder in order to access the download. Some mobile devices allow you to hold the zipped file icon and then click, “Extract.”
