When your child reads a book that provides just the right amount of challenge, maximum learning takes place. How can you tell if the level you’ve chosen is just right for them? Click here for choosing just right books or ask their teacher! (see end of post for even more tips!)Below you’ll find a sample book for each level. Below the picture of each book is a link to more books at that level from Scholastic Book Wizard.I tried to find familiar books and authors.

- If your child is in school, ask your child’s teacher his reading level. She may use a letter or number system. Use the Scholastic Chart to interpret it to a level that makes sense to you.
- Take a book your child can already read and type it into the Scholastic Book Wizard. See what other books are your child’s level and then make your library list!
- Teach your child how to choose a Just Right Book.
- Share your understanding with grandparents, this will help them purchase appropriate leveled books!
I hope this helps you find perfect books for your child!
