Best Books by Lexile Level

There are four main book leveling systems used in schools across the country are Lexile, Fountas & Pinnell (Guided Reading), DRA, and Accelerated Reader (AR). When we initially made our leveled list, we had to pick two of these systems to base them on, so we decided to use Fountas & Pinnell (Guided Reading Levels) & DRA. Unfortunately, at this point, we do not have set specifically for Lexile or Accelerated Reader. 

Please note: There are lots of different charts out there that attempt to match up the levels of the different systems, and they all seem to have slight discrepancies. After looking at DOZENS of these charts, we decided to go with the Reading A-Z site (here).
