TEA shares free summer reading resource

AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Michael Williams and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) encourage young Texans to continue reading throughout the summer. And to assist in that effort, TEA is sharing Find a Book, Texas, a free summer reading online resource.

Find a Book, Texas is an easy way to select books based on a child’s interests and reading level. A free search tool helps to build custom lists for readers at all ability levels and then locate the selections at local public libraries.

“Reading remains the one skill that can help combat the education summer slide for all students before the new school year,” said Commissioner Williams. “Through Find a Book, Texas, TEA joins with school districts, libraries and other organizations statewide providing resources that stress the importance of reading during the summer months.”

The Find a Book, Texas initiative is shared through MetaMetrics, an educational research organization that develops scientific measures of achievement. Find a Book, Texas utilizes the Lexile measure, which indicates the reading level of an individual or a book. By comparing a child’s Lexile measure with the Lexile measure of a book, a parent has a tool to help determine whether the text is too difficult, too easy or just right for a child’s reading ability.

MetaMetrics provides free online resources in reading and math for a number of states across the country. To learn more aboutFind a Book, Texas, visit the website at www.Lexile.com/fab/tx
