INFANT / TODDLER GRADES PreK-1 GRADES 2-3

Our high-quality books are organized by grade level and special sections to make it easier than ever before for you to plan and place your RIF order. The board books in these sets introduce basic concepts and stories. Illustrations and/or photographs are large and bright – depicting objects, people, and animals that young children love! Most books are standard board book size unless noted in the description. These books will appeal to children who enjoy listening to stories and are ideal for those who have become interested in learning to read independently. These books contain beautiful illustrations and pictures to spark a child’s imagination and bring the stories to life. These books emphasize basic reading skills and also provide easy to mid-level reading materials.

GRADES 4-6

These books emphasize reading skills and encourage a love for reading by providing middle-schoolers with content and age appropriate materials.

GRADES 7-9

These books are longer and more challenging than those in the previous section. Nonfiction books include facts, photographs, and other graphical elements which can be nice selections for reluctant readers.

AFRICAN AMERICAN SPANISH

We offer a number of book sets and individual titles that focus exclusively on African American cultures and themes. Many feature African American character(s) or are written by an African American author. Our Spanish selections provide high-quality Spanish and bilingual titles that satisfy the needs of today’s diverse student population.

Children may select books at a younger reading level than you expect.

To avoid this problem, bring your children through by grade and drape tables to save selections for the younger (or older) children who are still to come AND order a little extra at the younger age levels. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
