reading levels for kids

A lot of people think that it's important or positive for a child to read "above grade level", but does it really matter? Is it even good for a child to read books that were intended for an older audience? Many literacy experts believe that it doesn't matter, and that it isn't necessarily good - a child should read books that make for a pleasurable, positive reading experience. Read more about this at Babble, A Chair, A Fireplace, & a Tea Cozy, and Jen Robinson's Book Page. Our children's librarians are always happy to help you and your child find books that your child will enjoy.
