What do reading levels mean? Their purpose, and why discussing them should be left to the grown-ups. (Unless, of course, you’re comfortable with everyone at the bus stop comparing the number on the tags of your jeans with the others…)
This is an update to the Reading category on the site. Here is a direct link to the Stories for Kids in the Kids’ Stuff section, and a way to access previously written posts about reading with children. Examples include: Familiar Reading – Why your kids bring home books they can already read (and how to make the best of them!), a discussion of where to find leveled books, and some book recommendations for Back to School and preparing for Fire Drills.
