This is a test prep/reading comprehension skill worksheet comparing two short stories written by Susan Watters. The first story is called "The Milk Pail," and is based on a fable by Aesop. The second story, called "Skateboard Money," was written to be compared with the fable. There are five questions formatted using CST (California Standards Tests) question stems for fifth grade, but they also align with fourth grade standards. There are two questions about the themes of the stories, two character comparison questions, and one vocabulary question that requires the use of context clues.

I have lots more test prep and reading comprehension skill pages coming, and I want to adjust anything that is bothersome or needs to be fixed in my format or content! Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
