“The Predator” – Level G
Another songbook recently requested by some teachers in the Grand Island school district was The Predator. I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level for this title to be Level G based on the characteristics I’ve noted below. It would be most appropriate for ages 6 – 7 and first grade readers. (Of course, PreK through second graders love this book!)
