The Five Finger Rule to Finding a Just Right Book

    When you find a book on the shelf you think you’ll like, pull it off the shelf and read the first page. While reading, hold up a finger for each word you are unsure of or do not know.


    If you are holding up…

    ZERO or ONE finger – then the book is too easy for me

    TWO or THREE fingers – I can give this book a try because it seems like a good fit for me

    FOUR or FIVE fingers – this book may be too challenging
