There are several resources available to either tell you what the grade level is of a specific book or to help you find books on a particular level. In the CMC there is the The Fountas and Pinnell leveled book list K-8+ located at call number LB1573 .F638 2009, although it may only be used within the Curriculum Materials Center Library, located in Hagedorn Hall. This book may be searched by the title of the book to determine the reading level. All children’s books in the CMC have letters at the end of the call number to indicate the general recommended reading level: E= Early (pre-K to K), P=gr. 1-3, I=gr. 4-6, MS/JH=gr. 6-8, HS=gr. 9+.
Another source for determining the levels of books include Novelist K-8 (Available in most public library or school library database offerings).
