    This is such a terrific tool. I leveled my classroom library using it and made summer reading lists for each one of my students. I like the fact that it uses 4 leveling systems–DRA, Guided Reading,Lexile and Grade levels…
    One of many good things on Scholastic.com

    I like the Book Wizard too. I have made lists for most of my holiday book baskets and I am now working on my season book lists. I intend to do biography, sports, plants, and animal lists also. I have looked at the educator lists in the book exchange and I’ve gotten some very good suggestions so far. What a great tool and it doesn’t cost anything. I’ve passed the idea on to my teaching buddy. She uses it and she used to say she hated technology!
