Reading Levels

All our books will soon be categorised into approximate reading levels, so that you can get some idea of  how easy/difficult a book is to read.When deciding on the reading level of a book, we look at how complex the vocabulary is, font size, number of words on a page as well as whether there are any pictures. We find that these factors all affect whether a child is motivated to read a book for pleasure, particularly when first reading on their own.

We would always suggest that a child reading for pleasure reads a book that they can easily manage without adult help. If it is too much of a chore to plough through a book, their enjoyment is often compromised.

In our reading level system:

books are the simplest to read.

books are the most difficult to read.
