The Right Book for the Right Reader

In yet another example of how Lexile measures can be used to match reader to text, a 4th grade reading teacher over at, Michelle’s Kids Lit , does a nice job of presenting her latest book recommendations for students.  In addition to a thorough review of the material, including whether it’s age-appropriate or not, Michelle details word count, cover art, recommended age and the Lexile measure of the book.  With a review this thorough, parents and students have a good idea if a book is the right book for them before they even pick it up.  Give it a look.

And for those looking to match books to readers on a much larger scale, don’t forget about our Lexile Find a Book site.  Find a Book allows parents, students, and teachers develop book lists based on both a student’s interest and Lexile measure.  Interested readers can select from a broad range of categories and subcategories and then search for books on those topics (and at the right readability level) at their local library or Barnes & Noble retailer.  It’s just one more way Lexile measures can be used to match readers to books.
