Abstract
In this research, we aimed to develop a rubric to be used by fourth- and fifth-grade students in their book selection. For that purpose, literature on children book selection was reviewed and three different kinds of questionnaires for students, teachers and parents were developed. Using these questionnaires, we surveyed the opinions of teachers, students and parents about book selection. Then, we developed a tentative rubric to be used by the fourth- and fifth-grade students in their book selection. Following this process, this tentative rubric was presented to some experts who studied children’s literature. The experts examined this tentative rubric based on some criteria. After this evaluation, we used quantitative approach toward the content validity of this rubric. We used Lawshe formula in order to compute the content validity. Lawshe value of the rubric showed that the developed rubric had quite good content validity for book selection of the fourth- and fifth-grade students.

Key words: readability, book selection, elementary school students, independent reading.
