Lexile scores are currently the standard for matching kids with the books that will fall neatly into their level of reading comprehension. Scores can help ensure that your child is encountering books that are helping them grow as a reader, but note that Lexile scores should never be the only consideration, as they do not in any way account for content.

LexileThe official site for Lexile standards. Search for books by your child's current Lexile range, or by a range quickly approximated for you on-site.
