UTSA Libraries has a wonderful database called the Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD). In this database, you can search books by lexile, award, author, illustrator, and a variety of other features. This database is also linked to our print catalog so that you can check to see if we have this book in our library collections.

SAPL's NoveList

The San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) has a terrific database called NoveList, which can help you search for books by Lexile levels. All you need is a current library card and you can search online.

You can then search our UTSA resources to see if we have the book you need.
