Welcome To MaryRuth Books!

MRB books have long been a favorite tool for Reading Recovery teachers, classroom teachers, and parents. The stories are carefully crafted with the developing reader in mind. Thoughtful placement of text and the use of appropriate language assist and encourage developing readers, while familiar topics and situations engage young children. MaryRuth Books are perfect for practicing and reinforcing the literacy strategies necessary to become a successful and life-long reader. 

Selecting books that offer students the right balance of support and challenge is a key component to successful reading instruction. Whether you're looking for titles for guided reading, small group intervention (RTI), or ones with quizzes developed by Accelerated Reader, you will find "just right" books, both fiction and nonfiction, in our collection.
Testimonials and Suggestions 

My students are begging for more Danny Books. They even love to sit and just look through the new catalog! Hilarious!


~ Michigan Reading Teacher 


LOVE your books!  I just received my first two sets in an order and plan to order more for our school Literacy Closet.


~ Lori, Literacy Teacher, Kaneland McDole School 


The Danny Books by MaryRuth Books are beloved and horded by our beginning first grade readers.  There is something very comforting in these books for our reluctant readers.


~ Suzanne, First Grade Teacher, Illinois


My autistic granddaughter is finally having success with reading. Many thanks to the Danny books. Of course, our 11 year old yellow lab, Barney, is enjoying listening to her read, too.

Barbara, Grandmother, Maine 


My third grade students just completed MOVING. I thought this book would be perfect as a “ last” Danny book, a way to say good-bye to Danny. However, they don’ t want to leave Danny behind and have plenty of ideas for future higher leveled books about Danny!


~ Jackie, Title 1 Reading Teacher
