New app ~ Level It Books!

A great way to organize, level and track your books! Scan your book's ISBN to view Lexile, Guided Reading, Grade Level Equivalent and/or DRA levels for the book. Determining how to choose a book just got a whole lot easier. Every child progresses at his/her own pace, this app makes it easier to choose a book no matter what your child's reading ability or the leveling system their school is using. Click here.
