You WILL want to save this information!!!

I’m often asked from parents what kind of books they should purchase for their children who are reading on their own.  
 
If this is you, I suggest finding out from your child's teacher (or me) what reading level they are on…. the teacher will give you either a letter or a number.
 
Once you know your child's reading level letter or number you can do a few things:  
 
  • You can find books on their level using Scholastic’s BOOK WIZARD.
 
  • You can click HERE to see Barnes & Noble books on your child’s lexile level (if you know your child’s reading level letter and want to figure out their lexile level just use this leveled reading chart).
 
  • Check out this LIST of books by title and author.  Then go buy them or check them out at the library!
 
  • Check out this Leveled Book Database from A to Z Teacher Stuff.  Again, you can purchase books from this website or take note of the title and author and check them out from the library!
 
I don’t want you to confuse these books with all of the leveled books you see in various bookstores.  Examples include the “I Can Read” books or the “Ready To Read” books.  
 
These books have the ‘level’ written on the outside (see image below).  However, these are NOT equivalent to the leveled reading chart that teachers use.  Don’t get me wrong, these are WONDERFUL books for children but I just don’t want you to be confused by the level written on the cover of the book. Again, they are not equivalent to the letter/number the teacher gives you.
 
 
I hope you find all of this helpful! :)
