Reading Book List Information Page

The following are lists of book quizzes available through the Reading for Enjoyment Program. The lists are broken into categories of book awards and school grade reading interest or reading levels. This is provided to aid students and parents in the book selection for reading classes or for leisure reading. By no means does this limit students in reading only grade level books. We encourage "capable" readers to read beyond grade level and to experiment with new reading genres.

It would be recommended to check with the student's teacher before attempting to read a book outside of one's grade level. Some books may be too difficult to read or comprehend, while others may have content unacceptable for a less mature reader.
