Picture Books with simple labels or captions, and some with up to five or six words, often on one line. These books have clear, easy-to-read print with generous space between words. These simple formats enable young children to focus on print and reading from left to right while gradually increasing their control over more words.

Level 2 books have simple story lines or a single idea. The print is easy-to-read with adequate space between words so that children can point to words as they read. Books at this level generally have one or two lines of print on a page, somewhat longer sentences, and a variety of punctuation. There is some direct correspondence between the text and pictures, and repeating patterns support the reader. Topics are generally familiar to most children.

Level 3 books have more words and lines of print than level 1 or level 2 books. Print is clear and readable with adequate spaces between words. Most sentences are simple, but some have more complex structure, offering readers a challenge. Language patterns are more likely to change from page to page, so children cannot rely on them to make predictions and must pay closer attention to print.

Level 4 books have topics that are familiar to most children but also include some abstract or unfamiliar ideas. Text layout is still easy to follow with both large and small print. Sentences are longer and are carried over to the next page or several pages and use a full range of punctuation. There are more compound words, multisyllable words, and words with a variety of inflectional endings. Illustrations are still supportive but less so than at the previous level requiring the reader to pay more attention to print.

Vocabulary is more challenging, with a greater range of words and more difficult words, including some that are technical and require content knowledge. Books have a greater variety of styles of print and text layout, requiring close attention to print and flexibility on the part of the reader.
