Leveled Book Collections For K-4 Reading
SongLake Books carefully selects titles from 15 leading publishers. We then organize these titles into leveled collections for reading programs. Since we launched SongLake Books in 1998, our book collections have become the mainstay in K4 reading programs at home in the USA and abroad. Originally we designed our collections for Reading Recovery® programs. We have long since expanded our scope to include guided reading collections for classrooms, Title I, and bookrooms . . . and we continue to grow and adapt. Today, we meet the criteria for i3, RTI, Common Core, and ESSA.

Each set spans a range of guided reading or Reading Recovery levels to meet your needs. Our sets of 50 to 300 books include single-title collections and six-pack collections. Titles were hand-picked to target children of all ability levels, especially at-risk readers.

SongLake Books selects the most suitable titles from each publisher. Children see a variety of print, styles, layouts, and illustrations. Each collection includes fiction and non-fiction selections with a variety of genres at each level. Our collections are culturally diverse and gender fair.

Most titles in our Reading Recovery collections can be found in the Reading Recovery Booklist on line. Most titles in our guided reading collections can be found in Fountas & Pinnell's Booklist K8+. This assures that these titles have been tested by teachers in diverse settings across the country.

Each collection spans a range of levels to meet the varying needs of children in a typical classroom. You can monitor growth as children progress from one level to the next, independently, one-on-one, or in small group instruction. Collections for Reading Recovery programs are single copy sets arranged by Reading Recovery levels. Collections for guided reading include both single copy sets and six-pack sets. We include two lists with each collection: one arranged alphabetically and one arranged by levels. Grade 1 collections also include word counts. Our Reading Recovery training collection, Icing on the Cake collection, and Spanish collection also each include a set of labels to affix.

Each collection is boxed individually. For example, if you order 10 collections you receive 10 individual boxes. No need to sort and track. No more dealing with shortages or backorders. We do that for you.

We are happy to develop custom collections with you. Take advantage of our independence and the excellent relationships we have with so many publishers. Together we can help you obtain a unique balance of books. Doing this on your own is a very good idea, but it is probably impractical. When you work with SongLake Books, the selection and procurement process will be within your grasp.

Our discount pricing means more books for your dollar. We charge no additional fees for shipping or handling within the continental United States. The price we quote for each collection is the price you pay.
