Common Core

Kids Can Press is committed to helping you prepare your students for the Common Core State Standards. Our wide range of nonfiction and fiction titles are perfect for supplementing your lessons and readying your students for the quickly changing needs and expectations of the 21st century global workplace. Let's make the most of this opportunity, together!

Below you will find our recommendations for KCP titles that are excellent examples of books that align with one or more of the Standards for each grade level. By downloading the Excel or PDF documents (available for Grades K–8), you will have access to a resource that allows you to sort titles by a specific strand (eg: RL), or by standard number (eg: 6), in order to narrow down your search and help you find effective resources for implementing any grade-specific Standard (eg: RL.1.6: Identify who is telling the story at various points in a text) within your classroom or learning center.

We have Lexile and other reading level information available for each of these titles. Please contact us at for the comprehensive report or with any queries.
