Improvising for Jazz Saxophone by John O'Neill is a great book. it teaches a jazz style of playing, improvising and how to read the notes as you go along, with great backing tracks and demo recordings. Highly recommended.

I would say you could use every songbook for the saxophone, especially with playback. It's a lot easier in the beginning.

If you really want to dig deep into it, look into used or discontinued college Music Theory textbooks. I kept mine. It's called "Tonal Harmony" by Stefan Kostka & Dorothy Payne
