This compact system features a common sense approach to help your child improve his or her reading abilities and comprehension. READS is designed for parents of elementary school aged children looking for ways to help their children with their reading homework, improve their child's reading comprehension and develop thinking skills. Parents liked that their children were learning how to change their approach to reading, not just getting through a story but really understanding what it is about. In other words, truly comprehending what they are reading. There are 30 question cards which help parents know what to ask so that they can determine how well their child absorbed the material. The questions are general enough so that they can be used with any book.
