How to Read Title Annotations

Readability and Interest Levels: For each book, a Readability Level (RL) and Interest Level (IL) have been assigned. Readability Levels help you to select books that the child can read independently. A reading level of 2.3, for example, signifies that a book can be read and comprehended by a student in the third month of the second grade. However, only the teacher working with an individual child can determine whether or not a particular book corresponds to that child's independent reading level.

Interest Levels indicate the grade level for which a book will have maximum appeal. Titles in this catalog have been assigned the following Interest Levels:

P - Preschool
K - Kindergarten
Numbers indicate grade level (1=first, 2=second, etc.)

This is a nice treatment for a popular book about sharing that deserves a place in every math/literacy collection." - School Library Journal
