Reading Level Guide


Dear parent, why is it important for you to know the reading level of your child? How do you select the right books for your child?
Matching your child to their reading ability or slightly higher level is important to building their reading skills, language development and nurturing the love for reading. Here are some of the indicators that you can use to determine the reading level of your child. The aim is to support your child to advance through the various levels by providing challenging and appropriate books. This guide is available online at, in our catalog and we have also included a leveled book list with our recommended reads to help you select relevant books and support your child to learn both English and Kiswahili.
