Levelled books are one of the most important components in learning how to read. After a child learns the sounds of the letters, levelled books are the next vital step on the road to reading. It is important to provide a child with material that he or she can actually read. When children are just beginning to read, they can read very few words, hence the need for levelled books. Levelled books are organized according to ease of reading, beginning at Level 1 (Level A). Books at Level 1 (Level A) are very simple, designed for children who are only just beginning to learn to read.
Unfortunately, levelled books are expensive, costing three to five dollars a book, even when they are on a very good sale, with the typical price being around six or seven dollars. Worse still, many parents do not have easy access to these levelled books because they are usually marketed exclusively to schools and teachers.
