Re: Weird reading test
I would assume your dd is preschool or kindergarten. Those book are used to see if I child understands print. For example the look at the page and see if anything looks funny on it like picture upside down, print going up the page or other different concepts. I believe it is called concepts of print but don't hold me to that one.
