Leveled Book List (K-2)

Having students read books at their independent reading level is a great way to practice the skills and strategies that they are learning in school. This list is meant to serve as a resource for parents to help find books that your child can read independently. Find out from your child’s teacher what level would be just-right for him/her. You will see that many of the books are part of different series. Series reading is a great way to hook reluctant readers. If they find a series they enjoy and really hooks them… watch out, they will become reading machines! All of the books listed should be easily found at your local library or book store.

Happy Reading!
