How to choose a book

  • Sometimes we might feel like relaxing with a book and so we can choose a graphic novel or something easy.
  • Sometimes we need to read something which is a little too difficult for us. We should use a dictionary and concentrate on the meaning.
  • Usually though we want to find a book which is about right for us. To check the reading level you can use the Five Finger Test

Read a page in the middle of the book. Raise a finger for every word you don’t know.

0 - 1 finger...easy

2 - 3 fingers...just right

4 - 5 fingers...hard
