Schools & Libraries

Dear School and Library Customer,

Thank you for visiting the Albert Whitman & Company website. We are committed to partnering with you to provide books that entertain, educate, and encourage young learners. We are in the process of improving our website to better serve your needs.

One of the first key features we have developed is our “Wish list” function. The Wish List is a collection development tool that you can use as you search our site. Simply save any titles you are interested in to the wish list. At the end of your search you will have several options:

  1. You can print out your Wish List
  2. eMail your wish list to a colleague or to your vendor of choice
  3. Save the wish list to your computer for future use.
  4. Move one or more items from your Wish List to the Shopping Cart for purchase

Say for example you were looking for books on Autism, or books from a specific author, you could search through our list saving each title to your wish list for future action.

Albert Whitman & Company [AW] titles are available from most major wholesalers and distributors.

AW books are regularly reviewed in most of the school and library publications.
