My wife is an Educational Consultant (web site at www.ms-t-inc.com).
She frequently needs to put together classroom handouts and teachers
guides that are centered around the topic of "Guided Reading".
Part of the Guided Reading process is to have the children re-write
a specific children's book. Typically these books are the "picture
book" type with no more than 16-20 pages. The children do their own
drawing and add their own words taking the basic style of the book
from the original.

The basic question is can a scanned picture of the cover of the book
be used in these handouts? My wife wishes to publish a teacher's
resource book containing more than 50 of these Guided Reading aids.
This would result in using book titles from more than 50 authors and
probably as many book illustrators. In a way this resource guide
would promote the purchase of these books as they would be read to
the students prior to them creating their own masterpieces.

Can these guides be published without getting prior approvan from the
authors and illustrators?
