Really Good Book

I enjoyed viewing the lesson plan. I kept thinking of how cool it would be to actually incorporate the things into the story into the classroom while reading or as a teaser before reading the book. I liked the thoroughness of the use of the CAR strategy. It was very detailed and easy to follow for a substitute to come in and implement. I do have a question on doing this for every page though. How would you get through the book in a specified or set time? What are ways to speed up the process if you see you are pressed for time? Are there any alternatives to doing every page? Is every page really necessary or do you consider the possibility of the students getting bored and possibly agitated from stopping on every single page?
