To teach literacy is to change lives
Featured Book Character
Bella & Rosie
Our famous fluffy pups. Bella and Rosie, have many adventures in their books that students (and teachers) find
hard to resist! Bella is bold, adventurous, brave, and sometimes likes to
ask for forgiveness, not permission. Rosie is cautious, observant, thoughtful, and likes to
better be safe than sorry.
Both Bella and Rosie are easy characters to connect with throughout their adventures. Their conversations personify the myriad of personalities in any classroom. Readers identify and relate strongly with Bella and Rosie as they work through decisions that may be close to their own human perspectives—from not wanting to get haircuts, a vacation at the beach, or bonding over a troublesome puppy! They both have strong, multi-faceted character consistency, learning, and growth and are just plain fun to adventure with—at all reading levels!
Don’t just take our word for it! Here are a few letters that we’ve received from awesome readers:
