Online sites for finding leveled reading texts for children:
DRA Book Lists: http://wces.ucps.k12.nc.us/php/DRA_list.htm
You can find titles of books based on DRA levels 1-38.
Teacher Book Wizard: http://www.scholastic.com/bookwizard
This is the Scholastic Book Wizard site. Choose how to level books (AR level, DRA level, F and P level, etc.) and type in the title or author into the search engine to yield results.
Leveled Book Lists: http://home.comcast.net/~ngiansante
While this site uses Fountas and Pinnell levels, not DRA levels, it does sort book titles by grade level.
