A few things... 
  • Some books may overlap in levels. These are great to use as a stepping stone into the next level up. Please read the "Who's it for?" section under each book description to see if it is right for your child. We also recommend having your child read the sample sentence as well. 
  • These suggested reading levels are guidelines only. We can not guarantee a book will be a perfect fit for your child, as each child's language and literacy journey is different.
