    Is it Just Right?
    Sometimes it is difficult to know if a book is going to be too easy or too hard by just looking at it. The Five Finger test is one way to "test" a book before you spend too much time with it and get frustrated.
    Five Finger Test:
    1. Look at the cover.
    2. Read the title and the author.
    3. Read the blurb in the back.
    4. Flip through the book.
    5. Read the first page. Put up one finger for every "clunk" or mistake
    6. Use the 5 Finger Rule.
                                 0-1 fingers- too easy!
                                 2-3 fingers-just right :)
                                 4-5 fingers too hard!
