How to Choose the "Just Right Book"
When your child visits our media center, he or she is encouraged to pick a "just right" book for them. Our goals at CAES are to have books of interest at every level so that every student has many books to choose from. If you have a question about the level that your child should choose, please contact his or her teacher.
The student is also taught another way to choose a book when they come to the media center, which is called the 5-finger rule. The reader should open a book of interest and start reading the first page. Use the guide below to see how many words are difficult to read and determine whether your book is "just right" for you.
