How to find Fountas and Pinnell level in the USN collection


1. To look up a specific book:

  • Go to the Library Catalog
  • Type the title into the Search box
  • Fountas and Pinnell levels are listed under some titles in the list of results

2. To search for all books with a particular reading level:

  • Go to the Library Catalog
  • At the bottom of the Search box, click on “Reading Programs” and change to “Fountas and Pinnell”
  • Set your preferred range of levels
  • Click "enter" to find all books within your range range
  • You can also search for a specific keyword, title, subject, author, or series within your range

Please note that not all titles in the USN Library collection have a Fountas and Pinnell level.  We strongly encourage students to read based on their interests, not only their level.
