Just Right Books

       How do I know if a book is just right?

    The story or topic is appealing.

    The text is readable.  The print isn't too small or close together.

    There is appropriate picture support.

    There are no more than 5 tricky words on a page.

    There should be some words to work on.  If everything is easy to read, try another book.

    I can understand what the story or text is about.

    I can retell what I have read.
