Reading Comprehension for Girls: 48 Fun Short Stories
(CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform Oct. 4, 2014)
, Workbook edition
Reading Comprehension for Girls includes 48 fun short stories designed for girls to read. Each story is followed by four multiple choice questions that girls should be able to answer if they have already read and understood the story. Answers can be found at the back of the book.This book is divided into three parts:
- Part 1 has 16 stories with 1 page (approx. 200 to 300 words).
- Part 2 has 16 stories with 1-2 pages (approx. 300 to 400 words).
- Part 3 has 16 stories with 2-3 pages (approx. 500 to 800 words).
Each story features a topic likely to inspire girls’ interest in the story. Topics include:
- slumber parties
- birthday parties
- magical items
- field trips
- and much more
Most of the multiple choice questions have three answers to choose from in the beginning of the book, and this grows to five answers to choose from toward the end of the book. The answer key allows parents and teachers to quickly check student work (or aids as a self-check for students who are working independently).Students are encouraged to summarize each story in addition to answering the four multiple choice questions. Writing a summary forces the student to read the story and not just search for the answers to the questions. The print edition of this workbook includes blank lines on which to briefly summarize each story from Parts 1-2. For the e-book edition, a basic blank composition notebook or journal could be used for summarizing each story.The mermaid theme on the cover and interior design, along with the topics and characters of the stories, were chosen specifically to help interest girls. Of course, boys could read and enjoy this book, too, although some boys may not appreciate that it says “for Girls” on the title. Sorry, boys! (There may be a similar book for boys coming in the future.)
