Yes, he is. He will be in 3rd grade when school starts back. Those words are definitely hard for a 4 year old. My 4 year old is learning letters. ??? And some 8 year olds would have trouble with them as well![/b]
I always feel like gpoing when books start the reading level at 4. Pretty much only gifted kids can read a chapter book at 4. Granted my dd was reading books at 3...not chapter books though. My issues with it are these makes parents feel their kids should be reading books at 4 yo, which some can do but most aren't. This book would interest most children (more likely girls) ages 4-8...maybe some older, maybe some younger. But the content is not what a 4 yo would be reading as they can't read. And even at 5 the reading range should mostly be phonics books and early readers IMO.
