In order for you to better evaluate our books and materials, we would like to offer you some complimentary samples — both electronic samples as well as physical books.

Below you will find links that will allow you to view and print either a complete book or some sample pages. These free PDF electronic samples are almost identical in content and appearance to the physical books.

If you need any physical book samples in order to make a purchase decision for a school or school district, simply e-mail your request to Customer Service. We are happy to accommodate reasonable requests from educational institutions in the U.S. for physical samples of books from the following series: We Both Read, We Both Read – Bilingual, We Read Phonics, and Half & Half.

Please note that the file size is noted next to each sample below. Smaller files, such as Sample Pages, will open faster.

Please note that these PDF samples are only for preview purposes by school personnel and download is limited to one computer, one iPad (or other tablet), and one printed copy.
