Books and Reading

Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader (AR)

The AR program encourages reading and tests comprehension. If your child attends a school that uses the AR program, you can use the AR Bookfinder website to find books with associated levels and tests.

The Lexile Framework for Reading

The Lexile Framework is a scientific way to match readers with books that are at the correct level for their reading ability. If a teacher has requested that your child read books at their Lexile level, you can use the Lexile Find a Book website to find appropriate books.
