Amazon recently announced the major literary award winners in Children’s literature. Here at MetaMetrics, we had the pleasure of seeing each of these titles as they were all submitted for Lexile measurement. These titles were selected and used as part of Scholastic’s Reading Counts! Program, which has been utilizing Lexile measures for several years. Reading Counts!is a Lexile-based independent program that tracks a student’s success on titles they read, in and out of the classroom. We are proud to be the de facto standard when it comes to such a well-known and widely-used reading program.
Scholastic selects these titles well before they are award-winners and incorporates them into the various levels of their program. Caldecott Winners such as A Sick Day for Amos McGee (AD760L), Interrupting Chicken (AD300L) and Dave the Potter (AD1100L-also a 2011 Coretta Scott King Award winner) were all included in the SRC! initiative. Moon Over Manifest(800L) was the Newberry Award winner which is presented annually by the American Library Association to the author of the year’s most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Congratulations to all the winners! Celebrate their achievement by checking out these wonderful titles on our Find-A-Book website.
