    Reading Comprehension Lessons for The Pain and the Great One
    Title: The Pain and The Great One
    Author: Judy Blume
    Illustrator: Irene Trivas
    Grade Level: Third Grade

    Summary: The Pain thinks his older sister, The Great One, is a jerk. He cannot understand why his parents tell her that she is just what they always wanted. She thinks she is great because she can work the can opener and play the piano. He can’t stand his sister because she is a show off. When they go to the pool, she dives and puts her face underwater. The Pain thinks his parents love the Great One more than they love him.

    The Great One thinks her younger brother, The Pain, is a pokey slob. She cannot understand why her parents think The Pain is lovable. He dances around and sings stupid songs whenever she gets a phone call. He gets dessert even if he doesn’t finish dinner and worst of all, the cat sleeps with The Pain, even though she’s the one who feeds the cat! The Great One thinks her parents love The Pain more than they love her.
