One question you would ask before a read aloud: Looking at the cover and title, what do you think this book will be about? Why?
Reading Strategy: Mathematics
Rationale for Strategy: This book would be great for visualization because many of the poems are very descriptive and lend themselves to creating images in the mind. Students could draw what they see in their minds as the teacher reads the poems.
