A Book and a Hug - Reading Levels. As a librarian and during my days as an independent bookseller, I have always loved to match the right book to the right young reader. To perform that magic I try to ask children what two books they've read or heard that they really loved. I use that as my guide to what sort of reader they are. The sense of the child drives my book choices for that child much more than the "letter" or "lexile" they are slotted into by a system.

Where a defined level may empower the youngest of readers by being appropriate for their skills, for me as the kids grow, the levels can start to give folks tunnel vision. To encourage a love of reading and to allow kids to read below, on and ahead of their given level, I have given my reading levels very broad definitions. Teaching with Ipads. Teacher.
