Guided Reading Leveled Books 

The lists below include books in our library that have guided reading levels.  These lists provide you with many choices, but they are not comprehensive.  If you are looking for a specific book, please check our catalog to see if we own it and if we have included its guided reading level.

Guided reading levels are not included in our catalog for every book in our library.  You may search Scholastic's Book Wizard site here to determine a book's level.  On the Scholastic site, choose "guided reading" from the four choices before searching for the book.

We also have many other books in our library that are not included on these lists.  You may browse the shelves or ask us for help finding other books your child will enjoy reading.
 
The printable lists are updated periodically.  The most current lists are available through the "our catalog" links below or by searching in our catalog by typing "guided reading level A" (or other letter) in the search box.  Use quotation marks to get accurate results.
