Megan’s debut picture book ‘The Beehive‘ (ill. by Max Hamilton) will be published by Walker Books in 2024.
“Raising Readers does exactly what the title promises. It covers all ages from infants to teenagers, references academic research, includes well-known voices who speak with authority on a range of topics, and recommends a number of relevant texts for readers of all ages. The scope of this informative text is ambitious and tightly structured, consistently clear and always authentic. Highly recommended.”

An anthology about the power of teachers and their capacity to shape lives, edited by award-winning teacher librarian Megan Daley.
The power of an exceptional teacher cannot be overestimated. Sometimes it is not about what they taught you, but about how they made you feel as a person.
These are authentic accounts focusing on both the light and more sombre educational journeys of 30 key contributors, including Jessie Tu, Tony Birch, Rick Morton, Jacqueline Harvey + many more. Defying the usual stereotypes, Teacher, Teacher provides insight into what makes an exceptional teacher and is a celebration of great educators everywhere.
