Reader's Workshop Session #6: 

When you read a book again and again it's just like seeing someone new on the playground that you've seen many times. When you re-read a book you begin to understand some new things about it. One thing you begin to see is that all the pages of a book go together. As you read the pages, it's important to put them together in your own words to learn as much as you can.
