Do you ever find it difficult to keep track of the time you read each afternoon? Here is something to try. Ask you mom or dad for a piece of gum. Chew it while you read. Once the flavor is all gone, it's ok for you to stop reading. Of course, you don't have to! You can go right on if you'd like. Here's a little poem to help you remember this tip:
Reading books can be so fun...
Especially while you're chewing gum!
Read the story while you chew.
And when the flavor's gone you're through!
