Here are some FREE reading and mathematics resources parent and families can use with their children.
Find a Book, Nevada
Nevada is proud to be a part of a nationwide summer reading initiative sponsored by the Council of Chief State Schools Officers. The "Find a Book, Nevada" tool offers students over 160,000 books from which to choose. This book-search tool enables individuals to build custom reading lists based on their Lexile range, grade level, and/or personal interests, and checks the availability of books at the local library.
