The AADL catalog can help you find books for the appropriate instructional level your child is in at AAPS. Just do a search in our catalog for "AAPS Level" and the appropriate letter or follow the links below to get a list of AADL's holdings in each of the different instructional levels.
As Michigan schools adopt Common Core State Standards, more information about a child's reading level may be given to caregivers in Lexile levels. Follow the links below to get a list of AADL’s holdings according to Lexile ranges.
If you know someone who is overwhelmed by reading, AADL can help. A HiLo book refers to a text that has been written on a lower grade reading level, but with subject matter that would appeal to older students. Interest levels are labeled by age.
