"My third grade granddaughter loves books and is an avid reader. But she does not comprehend what she has read, has difficulty retelling a story in sequential order and is not doing well in school in that area. Her teacher has provided a Website that includes short stories followed by questions and vocabulary study. But my granddaughter is not enthusiatic about reading these stories and sticking with the assignment. I continue to insist that she read the stories and complete the reletd excercises. But its a struggle and a challenge. Any suggestions for making this more appealing to her. "
