Acquiring Leveled Books
The biggest hindrance to parents helping their children learn to read is a lack of appropriate reading material. Libraries rarely carry leveled books and, when they do, there are only a few books at each level and these books are often signed out. Finding leveled books for sale is difficult as they are primarily marketed and sold to teachers and educational institutions. Moreover, purchasing the few that are available is costly. Leveled books typically cost five or six dollars a book. Buying leveled books second- hand is nearly impossible because there are so few of them in circulation.
Fortunately, leveled books are now available in a new format. We offer our iPhone app books for only $1.99 (Tier 2) a book. Leveled books are thus easily accessible to anyone who has an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad device. Each leveled book app also contains a sight words practice area that highlights the words used in the story. A Learn To Read Library will be coming soon to the iTunes app store.
