The Incredible Book-Eating Boy is read aloud to young readers, and the story is discussed. Then, the lesson goes into how to build up one's reading stamina. The class brainstorms ways that they can build up their stamina such as: staying in one reading spot, reading silently, sticking with a book until it's finished, etc. Pupils are given a Reading Stamina Tracking Worksheet, that's embedded in the plan, and they use it to track their reading stamina each time they attempt to read an entire book by themselves.
