How do I know if my child is reading the right level book?
Use the 5 finger rule
Listen to the MUSTN'Ts, child. Listen to the DON'Ts. Listen to the SHOULDN'Ts, the IMPOSSIBLEs, the WON'Ts.
Listen to the NEVER HAVES, then listen close to me- ANYTHING can happen, child. ANYTHING can be. ~ Shel Silverstein

This is called “the least dangerous assumption” because exposing students to learning is not harmful, but keeping them from it is.
