I don't know how many books are on the list...there are several pages of books though. And they are listed by grade/age/reading level and genre. The books have all been pre-screened by Carrie. I bought the list to use with my oldest one who is using Bigger with my younger daughter but has a much higher reading level. This will allow me to choose appropriate books, in the correct genre, for him to use with DITHOR. I say it's well worth the $5.00. :D

yes, VERY worth the pennies per book!! It's sorted by genre and age group. I have referenced it so much in the last few years DH teases me that it needs to be laminated! :lol:

6timeboymom-

Put it in page protectors and in a binder. I did that with mine, and I feel confident it will hold up to all the use it will get! And it looks nice, too. :o

The book list is 19 pages long and divided by each type of literature (and then further divided into suggestions for Level 2/3, Level 4/5 and Level 6/7/8). I still use the list for help when picking books! :D

Blessings,
Carrie
