Welcome To MaryRuth Books!


For many years, MRB books have been favorite go-to books for Reading Recovery teachers, classroom teachers and parents.   Students eagerly look forward to new stories and love re-reading old ones. 
These stories have been carefully written with the developing reader in mind.   The topics and situations, both in fiction and non-fiction format, are familiar to young children.   Thoughtful text layouts and the use of appropriate language structures are important elements of these leveled texts. 
Selecting books that support the young reader's ability to access all the sources of information in the text is a key component to successful reading instruction.   Whether you are looking for guided reading books, small group intervention (RTI) or quizzes developed by Accelerated Reader, you will find "just right" books in our collection.
MaryRuth Books are perfect for reinforcing and practicing the early literacy strategies necessary to become a successful and life-long reader. 
Testimonials and Suggestions 
"Danny Books by Mary Ruth 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 in IL
“ My third grade students just completed MOVING, as 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 want to provide for you ideas for future higher leveled books."
Jackie, Title 1 reading teacher
"The saddest book I read was the book called THE FORT.   Can you writer another book called DANNY TO THE RESCUE?"
  Isaiah,   student
“ 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, too."
