Leveled Reading

Leveled Books For Guided Reading

Guided Reading in English and Spanish

Lee & Low Books has titles at a full range of leveled books to support read alouds, guided reading, shared reading, intervention, and independent reading. Every book is evaluated on multiple factors, including thematic and linguistic complexity, to determine its level. The books within each collection are accompanied by level-appropriate lesson plans and teacher's guides to support development of effective reading and comprehension strategies. 

Our leveled titles cover a wide range of concepts, themes, and interest areas that appeal to children and fit right into your daily reading block. They are also all diverse, culturally responsive, and authentic, reflecting the many backgrounds, cultures, and identities represented by today's students.

Classroom Libraries and Leveled Bookrooms

We work with schools across the country to create custom classroom leveled reading libraries as well as leveled bookrooms that reflect and affirm their students. To learn more about how we can help you, email bookrooms@leeandlow.com or fill out our quick online form.

Assessment and Running Records

We are proud to have twenty-two titles from our Bebop Books imprint included in The Teachers College Alternative Reading Assessment for Grades K–2. Developed by some of our nation’s top educators, the complete assessment program provides a trustworthy system for tracking and supporting children’s growth in literacy. Please visit Teachers College Reading & Writing Project (TCRWP) to learn more about the assessments and running records for Levels A–K. More information on our included multicultural books and resources can be found here.

ELL/Dual Language Programs

English Language Learners need the same literacy support as native speakers. We offer hundreds of Spanish books at all reading levels. Spanish educators and literacy experts have leveled Spanish versions of the Bebop books separate from the level of its corresponding English version in order to meet students’ Spanish language acquisition needs and abilities.

Our diverse books are culturally authentic, with high-quality translations that teachers will feel good about. We don’t treat our Spanish editions as secondary: they are equally important and published with great care.
