Goldilocks,
is this book just right?

Ask yourself these questions. If your answer is YES, the book is probably:

Too Easy

  • Have you read it lots of times before?
  • Do you understand the story very well?
  • Do you know almost every word?
  • Can you read it smoothly?

Just Right

  • Is the book new to you?
  • Do you understand a lot of the book?
  • Are there just a few words a page that you don't know?
  • When you read, are some places smooth and some choppy?

Too Hard

  • Are there more than 5 words on a page you don't know?
  • Are you confused about what is happening in most of this book?
  • When you read, does it sound pretty choppy?
  • Is everyone else busy and unable to help you?
