• Finding a Book That is Just Right!

    Let's review how you would use the "5 Finger Test" to find a book that is just right for you to read.

    1. Find a book that looks interesting to you.
    2. Open to any page and start to read the text.
    3. When you come to a word that you don't know,
    put up one finger.
    4. If you have 5 fingers up before you have reached
    the end of the page, that book is too hard for now.

    1-2 fingers up
    Just Right
    3-4 fingers up
    a little hard (so read slowly)
    4-5 fingers up
    too hard for now

    If a book is "too hard", you will not read it and will miss out on reading a really good book that is just right for you. You want to be able to sit back, get comfortable and say....
    Aaahhh...Just Right!

    Happy Reading!
