Pair-It Books by Steck-Vaughn

 

Pair-It Books by Steck-Vaughn: Books in this series balance age-appropriate literature and reading skills by pairing theme-based fiction and nonfiction softcover books for elementary readers. The patterned and predictable language combines with photos and pictures to support the text for children who are beginning to read and improve comprehension strategies. For grades K-5.  My prices are generally 10% below the publisher prices. If an item doesn't have a number below, it means the item is sold out. Titles with blue title links were last checked b3724 October 21, 2014. Titles with blue title links can be purchased on our e-commerce site when in stock. If out of stock, it will say they are unavailable and I will remove the link. The publisher no longer carries this series, so when items are not in stock, I will no longer be able to special order them for you.

New in 2007 -- a reproducible bilingual reading comprehension series that incorporates the text in English and Spanish of 22 of the titles below. See details of this new series which includes reading comprehension activities. These are currently available for grades 1 and 2. They complement the Pair-it Books. They don't replace them.

Another new series has come out that also incorporates the text of several Pair-it Books into four reproducible books that include comprehension, vocabulary, and critical thinking activities, as well as several graphic organizers. This is the Leveled Reading Series, and its books might be a helpful supplement to the Pair-it Books, even if they are not paired. There are two fiction books, one social studies themed book, and one science themed book. You can find the Leveled Reading Series for grades 2-3 here.  

Early Emergent Stage: Grade / Reading Level K : Each book is $4.28-D.

We receive a small commission from some links to third party sites with whom we have an affiliate relationship.

We're in the Pacific Time Zone
Our office hours when we answer the phone are irregular because we are alternating our location daily. 

 You can fax your purchase orders to 805-237-9639, but it's good to follow up with a phone call in a couple of days to make sure we got it, if you did not receive a delivery confirmation email. Please include an email address with your purchase order in case we have questions and so we can send your delivery confirmation number to you.  You can also attach a signed purchase order to an email.

 We prefer you ask your questions about products and availability by e-mail (barbsbooks@sbcglobal.net), since that gives us more time to prepare a thoughtful answer and keeps us from playing phone tag. Please remember to put our email address in your address book if you have a spam filter or you won't ever get your answer unless you also leave a phone number. We cannot usually tell you immediately over the phone if a book is here. We have to walk two blocks to check the warehouse, so I usually have to call you back or email you anyway.  We do check our e-mail frequently throughout the day when we are at home. If we should be out, and you leave a message on our answering machine, we sometimes cannot hear the phone number clearly to return your call. Those are some reasons why we recommend you email us first. If you want us to call you, please leave your phone number and time zone.
When you do email us, please do not leave the subject blank or just say "Hi" or "Hello" as the subject. We delete those before opening because a lot of spam messages look like that. 
We have supplied a subject line in the link provided above that will guarantee your mail will be opened fast.
Or call (800)925-8587 (not before 10 AM or after 10 PM Pacific Time)
We screen calls, so please leave message. If we are here, we will pick up if you mention you are calling about a book.
