This list suggests books for children whose reading level is higher than their grade level. For example, if a 2nd grader reads at a 4th grade level, this list will have some good suggestions. Most of the reading levels were determined using Lexile score and Microsoft Word's readability check. Readability is just one consideration when selecting a book. Many factors, such as content, age of the reader, interest, appropriateness of the text and text difficulty affect the suitability of a book for a child reader. While librarians and resource lists provide guidance, you are the best judge of what is appropriate for your child.
