: : 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?
: Dear Jim Holzschuh,
: Looks very risky the way you put it.
