Leveled Reader Book Tips and Tricks Part #1

Leveled Reader Books Tips and Tricks Part #1

Leveled readers are a great stepping stone on a child's journey to reading! However, there are a few things to keep in mind when searching for the right book for your child. First is that each publisher has different leveling systems, these levels may not coordinate with your child's individual reading levels. Please take a look at the books first to see if whats inside is something your child is capable of handling without getting overwhelmed. Our biggest goal as a parent or even educators who are helping them is to get them the right book to fit their reading needs and keep the experience of reading a fun one!

 **Please Note: Publishing companies are inconsistent within their “leveling” of books. It may be helpful to browse through a few examples in the levels to find what best fits your child’s needs and reading level.
  Many publisher levels assigned to books typically do not coordinate with educational reading levels. I recommend to consult with your child's teacher for more information!

The following post is the first part of a list of suggested Leveled Reader Books-within each series there are multiple levels and also multiple authors (see names listed below)

Cat In the Hat’s Learning Library by Tish Rabe
Examples Include:
On Beyond Bugs
There’s No Place Like Space
Oh, The Pets You Can Get!
