Guided reading is an excellent way to teach reading strategies, even for more advanced readers—but it's most successful when it contains a wide variety of texts. That way, students can choose books that match with their interests, which helps keep them motivated.

These Guided Reading Level Q books cover a wide range of topics, from the hilarious humor of Captain Underpants to facts about colonial America.

Use the titles on this list to foster group discussion around various themes and grow vocabulary through more difficult words and phrases. You can both integrate them into guided reading lessons for grades 3 to 5 and as stand-alones to build up your classroom library and keep students excited and engaged.
