Recommended Book List: Lower Grades

Finding the right book for the young readers in your life can be a challenge. Finding reading material for reluctant readers and students with dyslexia can be even harder. At Redwood, we use leveling to help us best match students’ interests and reading level. The following list of books are for students in the lower grades (K-3rd grade) or B-P Fountas & Pinnell reading levels. You will also see a column with Lexile numbers, which are the most common leveling used by library catalogs and online retailers. As you dig deeper and discover your child’s favorite books and authors, refer to the Reading A-Z correlation chart to switch between leveling systems.

This book list has been curated with Redwood students in mind. The titles and series feature engaging and diverse themes, plots, settings, and characters. They are listed in Lexile level order. Enjoy, and happy reading!
