Inspire Teachers and Learners with Outstanding Books
Furthering the mission of Penguin Random House, PRH Elementary Education provides unparalleled books and resources for teachers to help students foster the confidence and passion to engage with books and learning.
That mission informs everything we do—from developing Teaching Collections, built for educators to support specific instructional intent like Socio-Emotional learning, STEM, and Social Studies—to PreK-6 grade level classroom resources and guides to infuse the classroom with great series like Seuss and The Magic Tree House, and author study with Jacqueline Woodson, Nic Stone and more.
It is more important than ever before that our children become lifelong readers, writers, and learners. PRH Elementary Education is thus committed to supporting students, teachers and schools by sharing relevant, engaging, and diverse voices that harness the power of literacy, supports equity and fosters a lifelong love for reading that promotes success in and out of the classroom.
Teaching transforms. It motivates and inspires children to be confident, to explore, and to be critical thinkers and lifelong learners. PRH Education honors educators and their passion for being a part of a profession that is dedicated to making positive change in the lives of students.
