Our books are high-low, which means that the content is appropriate to the actual age of readers but the text has been edited to suit a lower reading age. Our reading ages (RAs) are 6, 6.5, 7 and 8 and 8+ our interest ages (IAs) range from 3-5 to teen. If you know your child or student’s reading age you can browse our titles by reading age, or browse by category and check the RA of any book that takes your fancy by clicking ”˜Read More’ on the book jacket.
If you don’t know your child’s reading age, try our sample pages below. Ask your child to look at the page and cover any words they can’t read with a finger. As a rule of thumb, assume that the book is too difficult if they cover more than five words per page.
