Level M Books

Leveled Reading is a system that is used to track children’s reading progression and help find books that correspond with that level.

Level M texts contain content that is carried by the print, which include complex plots with numerous episodes and time passing. At this reading level, word solving is automatic and it is easier to understand descriptive and content specific words.
