Children’s Accelerated Reader BookFinder
Are you using the Accelerated Reader program at your school? This web site provides the book level of over 100,000 books. Just type in the title of a book, topic, or author that you want to read, click go, and you will see the book level (BL) and the points (AR pts) for the book. If you want to look at a list of books to read, go to the advanced search and choose an Interest Level and an ATOS Book Level range.
The Independence Public Schools and some of the area private and parochial schools have access to all of the tests offered on the AR BookFinder web site. Please check with your school librarian to make sure that your school offers the test for the book you’ve selected.
