So, Selam is supposed to read 20 minutes a night, but we don’t have more than one or two books that she CAN read in the house. An hour in the library returned just two books that she can read. Last year, the teacher sent home books from the school’s collection–a different book every day. Apparently not this year. So I’m going to need to come up with something. I looked on Am//on at the various options for easy readers but I cannot decipher what level is what. It seems like every company has its own ranking level, which we discovered by checking out a dozen “level one” readers from the library that Selam can’t begin to pick out more than one word a page from. Does anyone have a group of readers that they liked? And know what the ranking levels mean? I hate wasting money on this but I also hate crying, so you choose your battles.
And yes, reading the Am**on user evals of the products makes me want to cry or throw up. “My 18 month old finished level two quickly but seems stumped by level three.” Seriously? seriously?
