I will never forget one of the years I taught second grade and that year my class absolutely adored the Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat, the kids were constantly asking me to read it and we read it over and over again. Once I read it two or three times, they knew the pattern and were reading along with me, by the time the end of the year rolled around I did not even read the book, I held up the book, used my pointer finger and pointed to each word and the kids read the book to me.
