Reading comprehension packet and answer key for: The Bookstore Burglar by Barbara Maitland
Summary: The Bookstore Burglar is a story about a bookstore owner, Mr. Brown, and his cat Cobweb. Their bookstore is a special bookstore that only sells ghost books -- and even has a ghost of its own. One day a burglar tries to rob the bookstore, but he sure gets a surprise from the bookstore's "ghost!"
Reading level: 1st grade.
Themes: mystery, ghosts, thwarting burglars, helpful pets.
Audience: This is an easy reader with lots of color pictures. The book is broken into "chapters" but only includes about 20 words per page. The words include high frequency words, words that are easy to sound out, and some irregulars (many of which are repeated so that children can learn them). This book is for students who are ready to break away from dull, phonetic readers, and read a good story.
