According to the Common Core State Standards, both qualitative and quantitative scales of text complexity should locate the college- and career-ready reading level as the endpoint of the scale. Lexile ranges have therefore been realigned to match the Common Core Standards’ text complexity grade bands, and reflect the standards’ trajectory of reading comprehension development through the grades. The Common Core State Standards Initiative offers the following overlapping Lexile bands (or Lexile ranges, as defined by Common Core) to place texts within grade bands. Grade Band

“Gone are the days of issuing textbooks to read at home. Instead, our students will be reading non-fiction books that are more engaging. The follow-up is not a paper and pen assignment or quiz, but a project where the students again interact with the text, cementing the information in their minds. I wish every class could have books like this for every topic they teach.”

READING LEVEL: PRE-K–K INTEREST LEVEL: PRE-K–1

Dinosaur School

LOW LEVELS GRL Lexile

This innovative first concepts series matches charming, full-color illustrations of dinosaurs with easy-to-follow text that gives beginning learners a solid base to develop into motivated readers. Accessible text matched with bright cartoon dinosaurs explores primary concepts like the five senses, while also examining places such as school, the zoo, and the farm. With the help of some prehistoric creatures, budding learners will take their first reading adventures while exploring early literacy skills and setting the foundation for future reading success. • Colorful dinosaur illustrations will engage young learners • Accessible, large-type text promotes sight recognition of words • Strong picture-text correlation reinforces basic concepts • Age-appropriate and achievable content • Words to Know provides additional reinforcement “Who wants to learn basic physical concepts from a boring human? The Dinosaur School series employs dozens of wildly colored, wideeyed, gleefully grinning, computer-illustrated dinos to illustrate the most elementary of first lessons. This is all about clarity: the bright characters cavort across plain white pages, while a brief sentence in large font makes a single declaration. Both pages in each spread play off each other to highlight the two opposing concepts. … Occasionally ending with visual glossaries, this is fine sit-and-learn stuff for the tiniest tykes.” — Daniel Kraus, Booklist NET Price reflects 25% off the List Price

EcoWorks When it comes to the environment and the serious issues we all face as it continually comes under threat, we often focus on what we’re doing wrong, not on what we’re doing right and how to continue improving on these innovations and practices. This series gives readers an in-depth look at some of the most extraordinary advances in environmental science, such as solarpowered homes, electric cars, and sources of renewable energy, and explains the science behind how they work. Readers are encouraged to explore ways in which they, too, can make a difference in their everyday lives. They learn all about their carbon footprint, and how they can reduce it through decisions and actions, such as recycling or planting a community garden. Technological advances are explained in straightforward language, giving readers the background they need to understand how the strides being taken by ecoconscious citizens just like them are truly making a difference. • Supports STEM educational initiatives • “Up Close” insets add helpful scientific detail and environmental tips • “Eco Fact” sidebars offer quick glimpses of environmental dangers NET Price reflects 25% off the List Price

Social Studies: American History READING LEVEL: 2–3 INTEREST LEVEL: 2–5

What You Didn’t Know About History History books don’t often ask questions. They just state information. But history lovers usually have lots to ask: How do we know the Thanksgiving in 1621 was the first? Why did the Pilgrims choose present-day Massachusetts for their settlement? Was an order given to start the shooting that became the Boston Massacre? Readers will learn the answers to these questions and more as they find out many details often left out of traditional history books. Historical images enhance the surprising content while fact boxes flesh out the social studies content even further. As it turns out, there’s a lot we don’t know about history! • Surprising historical information augments standards-based social studies curriculum • Fact boxes offer fascinating details • Colorful images and captions complement text • Graphic organizers aid reader’s understanding “Beautiful illustrations on the cover and throughout these brief books present lively aspects of each title. … Students will be interested in reading about one-room schoolhouses and the early age children began working during pioneer life. RECOMMENDED.” —Library Media Connection “More earnest than the “You Wouldn’t Want To…” series (Scholastic), and for a slightly younger audience, this set provides compelling details about day-to-day life in various American epochs. The simple design makes the books appealing to young readers. The accessible writing is straightforward and succinct. … All in all, a first-rate series for budding historians.” —School Library Journal NET Price reflects 25% off the List Price
