Lexile® and Guided Reading Levels

Unfortunately, only some of our books in the Ready-To-Read series have been evaluated for Lexile® at this time. We hope to have more Simon & Schuster titles included in the Lexile® Database in the near future.

Manuscript Submissions

As a general policy, Simon & Schuster does not review or return unsolicited manuscripts or artwork. We suggest that prospective authors and illustrators submit their materials through a professional literary agent.

We cannot recommend specific agents for your work but a directory of agents is one section of Literary Market Place, a reference work that can be found in most libraries. Literary Market Place also has a website.

Alternatively, should you wish to pursue self-publishing your work, we invite you to explore the services offered by Archway Publishing, from Simon & Schuster. Visit for more information.
