Mensa for Kids – Excellence in Reading Kinder-3rd Grade List

The Mensa for Kids organization is encouraging kids to read by giving out a certificate and a free t-shirt to kids who have completed the Excellence in Reading list. Kids do not need to be Mensa members nor identified as gifted. It’s for kids who are willing to read a little bit every day.

There are four reading lists for K-12. The list below is from the K-3 reading list. There are two sections in this page. The picture books are listed first, then the chapter books. The chapter books are sorted by their lexile score. Kids can read them in any order they want. I just asked my kid to read the picture books first as they were easier (and she likes pictures). At the end of this page is a screenshot of the books that my child has read and her ratings.
