TEACHING BOOKS is an excellent database for finding materials to bring into the classroom. You can search by genre, age group, keyword, and more.

Use the link to GOOGLE SCHOLAR that's on the library homepage. This is synced to our databases, so if we have full text, it should give you a link.
This is also a great way to check for full text if you find a citation elsewhere. If Google Scholar doesn't lead you to the full text, contact the library for help getting a free copy of the resource you want.
