don't know or understand.1. If you hold up one finger (your thumb): Thumbs up! Youknew all but one word! This book will be pretty easy for you.2. If you hold up two fingers (your thumb and first finger tomake an “L”): “L” stands for learning. You might need somehelp, but it will be a good learning book for you.3. If you hold up three fingers (3 middle fingers to make a“W”): “W” is for Warning. You can read this book, but it is awarning that it might be frustrating and you may not enjoyit.4.
