Clip to ScrapBook #3

That is a GREAT piece of writing! Thanks for sharing! I also sent home a note to my parents about why chapter books (not all, but many popular ones) are easier.

Chapter books:
- have a controlled vocabulary in which the author is working
- have predictable characters, plot structure, and settings
- offer more support than picture books because readers develop a "schema" for how books from a certain series will go
