I have a book on my shelf  called Houghton Mifflin Spelling and Vocabulary: Level 2. This book is a 2nd grade level book but in the book description it shows it as a 4-8 yr old reading level. I tried to go into the description to change it but there isn't a place to list that information so I don't know where it is being pulled from.

 

It isn't a big deal but I'm thinking to myself "if it is wrong on one book, it is probably wrong on others".

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Char

I see where you can change the Subject, but the next range of ages is 9-12.

Technically, 8-years-old would be (most likely) 2nd grade so I don't see that it's necessarily wrong.

You can change the information using the EDIT BOOK DATA button at the bottom of the page.  It is then submitted to the Book Data Approvers who verify the information and update it.  You may want to change the category entirely, I believe there is a subcategory under children's books for educational materials.  Also you may want to check and make sure there is a good description of your book listed.  I think books are chosen much more quickly if people know what the book is about.

Would the person who placed an order for this book please pm me?

I need to ask a question before I process the order and your pm link is not showing up on my screen. I don't have any way of identifying the member so I'm hoping you'll contact me.

 

Thanks, Char
