What is NoveList K-8?
NoveList K-8 Plus is a database about books specifically for younger readers. It helps kids find books that are just right for their reading level and interests. Parents, teachers, and librarians can also find tools to teach with books and engage young readers. It allows readers to use a favorite author or title as a template to locate other authors and titles of interest. You can browse theme-oriented book lists at every reading level and look for outstanding titles in Award Winners. You can learn more about books and authors through Feature Articles, Book Discussion Guides, and BookTalks. NoveList K-8 includes picture books, children's "chapter" books, children's and younger teen titles in both fiction and non-fiction. (You can also choose to search books for readers at older teen or adult level by using NoveList Plus.)
