We pride ourselves on publishing children’s books with characteristics of children’s picture books.  We want our books to attract kids like books they see in libraries and bookstores.

Books for Young Learners are used in classrooms for small group instruction. For every book in the Books for Young Learners collection, there is a Book Note, many of them written by Margaret Mooney, and others written by teachers we have worked with over the years. 

This year we have created New Book Notes
adding Comprehension Prompts for Oral or Written Use written by Connie Hebert!  There is a set of Comprehension Prompts for every book in the BYL collection. 

Please spend a few minutes exploring the New Book Notes. If you want to download

New Book Notes for specific titles, click on BYL in Alphabetical Order.                                    

Enjoy the New Book Notes with all the BYL Books.  We welcome your feedback about the books or the New Book Notes at any time.  Write to Richard Owen.  Let us know what you think.

of truly fabulous books.
