I'm hoping someone who teaches elementary reading can answer this for me:

My son's biggest reading challenge is fluency. All through first semester his reading group was on L books, and his oral reading was fairly halting with no improvement. Now his reading group has been moved on to M books, and now that he can select Magic Tree House books he is WAY more fluent on them. To me it seems like many Magic Tree House books have simpler words and shorter sentence structure than many of the L books he read, such as the Cam Janssen mysteries and the Horrible Harry books. But supposedly MTH are a higher level? Does that mean that Magic Tree House has a lower lexile? Why are Magic Tree Houses an M whereas Cam Janssen & Horrible Harry are L's? Content?
