I put in the following from the 2nd lesson of book D (about 1/3 of the lesson, D is lowest book I have):


The rabbits won the first battle by starving out the prairie-dog towns. The rabbits carried brush and covered the burrows of the prairie-dogs so that they could not get out. When the prairie-dogs were starving, they sent a rabbit they had captured to sue for peace, and used his white tail as a flag of truce. The rabbits had a council of war and agreed to terms of peace. So their general sent squads of rabbits and had the brush removed.


When the army of rabbits withdrew, some prairie-dogs, who were not very wise, began to make speeches, and after awhile the prairie-dogs thought that they had really made the rabbits remove the brush. As the pile of brush was very dry and the weather was very hot, a jackdaw, who had found something like a sun-glass, came along and set the brush on fire.


This fire drew a great many animals together, and the prairie-dogs made them believe that this was a bonfire in honor of their victory. But the woods were set on fire so that the owls and rattlesnakes were driven into the burrows of the prairie-dogs for safety. So a friendship sprung up among them, and they still live together in peace.

Does that mean its a 6-8th (stretch band) or 9-10th (current band) text? (Scoring is here I think.) I think I'm doing something wrong. (After I know I'm doing this right I'll do a broader sampling of each book and post the results.)
