Too easy reading for my 2nd grader
on May 6, 2010
I bought this book based on others' recommendations and because Amazon recommended it because I bought the Sassy books by Sharon Draper. I could not find a specific reading level on this book (9-12 is too generic), so I figured that if the girl was in fourth grade, the reading level should be about 4th grade level. My daughter -- who is in 2nd grade and reads at 6th grade level, but prefers to read at 4th/5th grade level -- found this book way too easy and the story not very engaging. She read the first two books, in only about 45-60 minutes per book. So I would guess it is written at maybe higher-2nd grade to 3rd grade level.
