Lissi,

Thank you for your suggestion.  I didn't know about them.

Thanks again,

Dear Pam and booksharian Friends,
 
It is a coup for Bookshare to be getting books  directly from Saddleback Press. 
Have you notoced the many high interest low  vocabulary books from the Orca 
series already in the collection? The ones I'm  familiar with are primarily for 
middle school and older kids, though there might  be a branch of that series 
directed to younger readers. 

 
Always with love,
 
Lissi
