Sometimes books can feel harder because the author tricks you! Books have patterns, and then--whoops! The pattern breaks! And it usually happens on the last page. Readers need to bring every power they have to solve that page.
Careful readers check that their reading makes sense and sounds like a book. They stop and ask "Did that make sense? Did that sound right?" If not, they don't just keep going! Readers try to fix it!
Pattern power doesn't only help you read the words in your books, but it can also help you think about your whole book. When you get to the last page of a book, you can think about how the ending goes with the pattern. Then ask, "What is this whole book really saying?"
One way to get stronger as a reader is to think and talk and play and sing with the alphabet, getting to know all the fun ways letters and sounds go. Then when you read, you can use all you know about letters and sounds to read the words the author wrote.
