Why are leveled books the best way to teach kids to read?

Even though they’re in the same grade, not all children read at the same level. The most effective way to help children build reading skills is to provide them with high-interest books at their instructional level. In this way, students can increase their fluency and comprehension step by step. For struggling readers, leveled books allow them to concentrate on comprehension rather than experience difficulty with unknown words.
