Accelerated Reader Books

One of the biggest challenges for us as a parents this school year has been trying to help Josh find the right AR books to read. He reads on a 3.8 to 5.8 reading level. Even though he can read up to a 5.8 Duane and I feel that he is not ready to read that high of a level due to the length of the books and subject matter. We are encouraging him to try and pick books in the 3.8 range right now and work his way up to the higher level books. Currently he is reading Goosebumps and looking forward to reading some of the Merlin Missions from the Magic Tree House series. Josh and I frequetly look at My Child's Bookshelf website because I am able to pull up the books that are within the 3.5-3.9 book range and allow him to select the one he would like to read next.

He is reading this book:
