If you are looking for “just right” books for your child to read at home, this reading conversion chart will help you identify them. While the chart will give you an idea of what levels are considered grade standard, all young readers should be encouraged and supported to read at their own pace and level.

Our chart includes links to the books that we recommend for each level. All of these books should be readily available at the library, your local bookstore or Amazon.
