How to Find Lexile Levels for Children's Books

While Lexile Levels aren't as commonly used as Grade Equivalent Book Levels, they are growing in popularity in many school districts.  I am a fan of your good old fashioned reading levels.  They're easy to read, easy for parents to understand and probably the most commonly used ranking system for books in the U.S.  However, due to some standardized as well as computer based tests showing student scores and progress in Lexile Levels, some schools are now changing to Lexile Levels in their classrooms and libraries.  While Lexile Levels aren't quite as easy to grasp as AR or standard "Book Levels", there is a site that can help you figure out a level quickly - and it's simply www.lexile.com.  You'll find a wealth of information on this website from book lists in your child's/student's level to information on how these levels are calculated.  In the upper right-hand corner of the page, you will see a search box where you can enter book titles, authors or ISBN numbers.  This is a quick and easy way to search for a book and find the correct lexile level for your child or student. 

If you need a way to find AR levels, see my previous post here.
