Perfect for Small Group Instruction

Each title comes in a 6-pack to encourage and support intervention and small group settings. Our titles cover a wide range of concepts, themes, and interest areas that appeal to children and fit right into your daily reading block.

A Promise of Cultural Authenticity

Together with meeting the demands of education standards, Bebop Books aims to reflect and celebrate today’s classroom and the uniqueness of each student. Our diverse reading bookrooms offer a balance of gender, race, cultures, and family dynamics, with an emphasis on cultural authenticity and high-quality literature. Our list of creators includes many award-winning authors and illustrators of color.

Spanish, Bilingual, and Dual Language Bookrooms

English Learners (ELs) need the same literacy support as native English speakers. We recognize the need for quality leveled books in Spanish as well as English in today’s schools. We offer hundreds of titles in Spanish and bilingual English/Spanish titles, from reading levels A through Z. Our books are culturally authentic (including many originally written in Spanish), capturing the diversity of Latino/a experiences as well as stories from around the world. 

Lesson Plans and Teacher's Guides

All of our bookrooms come with free, downloadable lesson plans and teacher's guides. Developed by educators, our extensive, classroom-tested guides provide a wealth of practical, comprehensive ideas for motivating readers and guiding their development of effective reading strategies. We offer scripted lesson plans for books in guided reading levels A–J, including strategies for building background schema, preparing students for close reading, and fostering meaningful discussion (see an example). Our Teacher's Guides for guided reading levels K–Z offer strategies for expanding students' vocabulary and comprehension, encouraging student reflections in writing, facilitating home-to-school connections, and much more (see an example).
