What do kids have to do to get to the next PM reading level? Can they stumble over uncommon words or do they have to get everything very fluently? Are they allowed one mistake?
I know they need to be able to comprehend and understand inferential meaning. What are good examples?

I like my kids to be able to read at an easy level (over 90% accurate) with reasonable fluency and phrasing. If they don't have the phrasing and fluency it can sound robotic or like they are just barking at print.
The comprehension needs to be there also. Questions usually just relate to the text. They usually ask an obvious one, a "hidden" one and an opinion one "head/heart".
Not sure if that's helpful or not!

It depends on a few things. The number of incorrect words, fluency and comprehension. They are able to make a few mistakes.

90% accuracy or it's too hard.

I think with PM readers if the fluency and accuracy is there then it would be the comprehension questions at the end holding them back. Having casual chats about other stories you read together or movies you watch is a good way for kids to start paying a little more attention to what they are reading/watching. Also, covering up some words in the book and asking them to predict what that covered word might be is another useful strategy...

I wouldn't get too caught up on levels. The main point of reading is enjoyment and understanding.

I agree Big Red, but when you're learning to read its important to get books that challenge your skills and help to improve your reading ability.

When kids are learning to read it's far more important that they are developing a love for reading. That they are reading for enjoyment and pleasure! It's just so important, and that they are making meaning from what they are reading.
We want them to feel successful, not challenged.

Acadaca - my suggestion would be to forget the PM benchmark level (and I know that is what you were specifically asking about) and just focus on enjoying reading with your child.
Make sure your child sees YOU reading for pleasure (book, magazine, newspaper). Tell them what you what you were reading about, tell them why you found it enjoyable.
Read with your child. Read to your child. Don't stop reading to them once they have learnt to read. Read everyday, make it fun, make it enjoyable, make it a time your child looks forward to and can't wait for.
Make sure your child has a wide variety of books to read and to read with you. Explore lots of genres together. My six year old loves cook books (the apple doesn't fall far from the tree lol) and we quite often read recipes together
Hope that helps :
