Good companies to order books in bulk for classroom?
Although school is out, I recieved a call from my principal today. I have some additional money outside of my bulk order that I can use to order books for my classroom. Does anyone know some good sites or companies that I can order off of? My school has used BookSource in the past, but I don't like their website and find it difficult to navigate. I'm going to add a little fiction, but would really like to add some quality nonfiction to the class library and some guided reading sets. What sites or distributing companies do you suggest?

Mary Ruth books
Mary Ruth books are good books too.

They have photographs and start out with simple text. I highly recommend them!

if you are using school funds, make sure you can order from certain places. i know some districts have specific vendors that they can/cannot order from.

I love the nonfiction books from Capstone Press. They have a wide variety of reading levels but the books were pretty expensive for me since I was using my own money. I ended up getting ISBN numbers from their site and looking them up elsewhere so I could buy less expensive paperbacks.

Books for Two Readers
Treasure Bay ( has fabulous books for two readers, as well as some very good "We Read Phonics" books and a wonderful Photo Adventure Series. I recommend them highly.
