A Picture Book Companion is an add-on that can expand the reach of your school-wide reading program when the chapter book might contain themes that are too complex for younger readers, especially your preschoolers.

You can request to include the Picture Book Companion on the Request A Quote page when requesting a quote on one the chapter books below.  Picture Book Companions often have an up-charge that will be communicated to you on your quote.

Read to Them’s Book Selection Committee is composed of two Read to Them staff members, one former Read to Them staff member, and five educators. Books under consideration are read and carefully vetted by each member of the committee. Every cycle is six months, with each period ultimately resulting in the addition of new titles that will delight both students and educators.

Books that we believe may contain sensitive content for young readers and your community will say so on its individual book page, and specify what that sensitive content is so that you can decide if it’s appropriate for your school and community. We always recommend that a team at your school read the book before you purchase to ensure that a book is appropriate for your program.
