The Explanation Game
Take a closer look at the image from the book that you are trying to understand
* Name It. Name a feature or aspect of the picture that you notice.
* Explain It. What could it be? What role or function might it serve? Why might it be there?
* Give Reasons. What makes you say that? Or Why do you think it happened that way?
* Generate Alternatives. What else could it be? And what makes you say that?

that book was a very deep book it made me have to think about what was happening and what it could be about because it was very deep and powerful book.
That book is a strong and extremely detailed. It sounded like it was happening in real life! It’s that detailed I could have a page full of thinking happening now.
This book made me think of that other book called wolves in the city book we read a long time ago with a lot of darkness in both books and they both were really scary!
