Helping your child choose the right book

Stumbled upon this from:
http://thewellreadmuslim.blogspot.com/2011/04/how-parents-can-help-children-choose.html

The ‘Five Finger’ method:

1. Open the book to any page.
2. Start reading.
3. Whenever you come to a word you don’t know, hold up 1 finger.
4. When you finish reading the page, look at your hand and count how many fingers you are holding up.

If you are holding up:

0-1 Fingers the book is too easy
2 -3 Fingers, the book is just right
4-5 Fingers, the book is most likely too hard; choose another
