Learning A–Z provides materials delivered online and through the iTunes Store that help children learn to read, write, and discover the wonders of science. All our materials are leveled so that children can access information at their reading level. Our leveled readers begin at level aa with labeling objects. In level A simple sentences are presented. With each level thereafter the sentences get more complex and the words become a little more difficult.
A QUICK GUIDE IN PLACING YOUR CHILD at the appropriate reading level is to understand that level aa to C provides average kindergarten instruction; D to J—first grade; K to Q—second grade; R to U—third grade; V to Z—fourth and fifth grade. The letters earliest in the alphabet match beginning of the year instruction while letters at the end of each grade range match skills at the end of that grade year.
This book is available as part of a ten-book set in the Level G Library.

ReadSmart is a set of patented technologies created by Language Technologies, Inc. for improving reading comprehension, speed, and enjoyment. Generic e-books preserve content and facilitate distribution, but remove the unique typographical qualities of the book. We do not believe electronic books have to look identical.
ReadSmart algorithms analyze text to give document-specific results: the arrangement of text for a document is optimized while preserving the designer’s layout. Once a digital book has been created using ReadSmart technology, it has the look and feel of a book, not a generic electronic document.
