Shopping for a Book

Room 11 Readers

We teach our readers that one of the most important things to do to become a better reader is to read good-fit books, and the I-PICK acronym is just the tool to help them make great selections.

I PICK Good-Fit Books

I select a book and look it over, inside and out.

Purpose: Why might I want to read it?

Interest: Does it interest me?

Comprehend: Do I understand what I am reading?

Know: Do I know most of the words?


Children who learn to select good-fit books are empowered to make excellent reading choices whether they are at school, at home, at a bookstore or in a public library.  Shopping for books is part of our ‘Daily 5’ reading programme.
