Book Adventure by Sylvan Learning

We all love Novelist, but sometimes, slogging through its results can be a bit time-consuming, especially if you are looking for a specific subject and reading level. Here's where Book Adventure from Sylvan Learning can help. I just discovered this site, and it looks great! Not only can you enter reading level and select a number of interests/subjects/genres, but you can choose to ask for 'easier books' or 'challenging books.' Which is great for parents who want their son/daughter to find books that challenge them but are also within range of appropriate subjects for that age-group. It's sometimes difficult, when a 5th grader is eager to read beyond his level, but many of his choices involve subject matter that is a bit over his head. Kids can also make lists and win prizes! Give it a try!
