Welcome to Kids Reference Preview Program in cooperation with
Diamond Lake Book Company (division of Abdo Publishing.)

Here’s how it works:

•    Kids Reference gives you a call to schedule 1 or 2 preview boxes to arrive at your library at a time of your choosing.  

•    Be sure to keep one copy of the invoice for your records.

•    Choose from Non-Fiction and Fiction packages – select a preferred grade level as well.


  •    You do not have to wait for us to call you to return the books – if you are done before we call you back, just give them to UPS please.
•    Inside the box is approximately 40 Library Bound titles, 2 copies of a pro forma invoice, an Authorized UPS Return Label, and a Budget Savers Sale List.   •    WAIT - Hang onto that Budget Savers Sale List! It is a great opportunity to fill in what’s missing in your collection.
•    Once the box arrives you have an opportunity to pick and choose, hands on, the titles you wish to keep based on what suits your library.

•    Seal the box back up and put the UPS Return Label on top.

•    Put the books back in the box that you do not wish to keep.


  •    The next time UPS is in your library, just point out the box to them and they will take it away.

•    There is never any obligation to buy, and we will never charge you for books you don't want to purchase.

  •    Once your preview box is received back in the warehouse, you will be mailed an invoice for the books you kept.

*Feel free to schedule a preview online. Just shoot us an email through our website with your preview selections and a ship date.
