Saddleback

Saddleback started in 1982 as a family-owned business. We are proud that its original values are still in place and the company continues to be run and managed by the same family.
Hi-Lo is a term used to describe high-interest, low-readability books. Saddleback’s solutions incorporate mature, complex themes (high-interest) at lower reading levels (low readability). This combination engages readers by giving them content they WANT to read while setting them up for success.

Buying these titles
All titles (when available) may be purchased for use online and offline, either individually or as Class Sets (at a reduced price).  Options include making the book available campus-wide (using the school's IP Range) allowing access on all devices when on campus, Class Sets controlled by a class-wide login (no need to register each individual student), to individual purchases, which allows the user to possess a book, rather than just online access for a certain period.  There is also a complete LMS solution integrating the books such that scores are returned to teachers, administrators or even school boards.

About Us

We are teachers and educators based in Japan, the UK, Canada and the US. Our focus is on providing high quality content digitally. We preserve the strength of books (the layout, graphics and so on) while also adding in the elements that teachers want, and students need. Simultaneously, our solution enables the books to be used as full e-learning content and integrated to the wider LMS environment.
