Reading skills is one of the most important language skills in the process of development of knowledge since transfer of knowledge is mostly done through reading. In fact, every our activity is always associated with reading to recognize symbols, texts, pamphlets, announcements, posters, television shows, train travel schedules, ads, and the internet. All our lives are reading. The results of the PISA survey in 2006 and 2011 showed that the students' reading ability of Indonesia was still low compared to other countries. This condition is certainly questionable, because basically all children are born with the same potential, including the children of Indonesia. However, with these data concluded that habituation and learning model implemented in Indonesia is different from international standards so that such potential was not well developed as other countries. Surabaya as one of the second largest metropolitan city after Jakarta has high enough concerns in developing a reading culture. Many activities carried out in developing a reading culture in Surabaya. However, one activity that has not been done is to measure the child's reading level. Also, there was no specific program conducted to select tiered books in accordance with the children reading abilities. Therefore, this research is intended to develop a reading culture program through the design of tiered books in order to increase children read capability and to see their reading comprehension level. The book was designed into 7 levels as new books presented in the midst of the people of Surabaya. The book was developed in accordance with the indicator of Fountas and Pinnel in their book The Continuum of Literacy Learning Grades K-2 and grades 3-5 adapted with Indonesian curriculum. Besides, reading comprehension ability assessment is a new tool. This research was conducted by the research design R & D (Research and Development), implemented in schools in Surabaya that have been involved in Surabaya Literacy program. The study resulted that, in addition to, producing tiered books as many as 7 levels of the book, during the implementation of the product, first-graders reading skills may not necessarily be the ability at level 1 reading. The reading ability of the student depends on a lot of variables, such as a social community the student live, educated family or not, and the attractiveness of the textbook itself.
