1.Open a book to any page.
2. Start reading the page.
3. Hold up a finger for EVERY word that you don't know or have trouble pronouncing.
The book is too EASY
The book is at the Interest level.
The book is at the Challenge level.
You can try it~be sure it makes sense.
The book is at the Frustration level and is not a good choice for now.
