If You Give a Moose a Muffin
If You Give a Moose a Muffin Book and Audio CD Set (Paperback) - Laura Numeroff,Felicia Bond

This book was such a cute book to show predictions in reading. Students have such a fun time guessing on what the moose is going to want next, and have suspense to see if you give him something, what he will be getting in return! I saw a group of students in class use this for cause and effect and it worked great! They used muffins as the cause and effect and there are many ways you could use create this using other elements in the story, but I really enjoyed this! I could also see it being used on working on foreshadowing and predictions to expand reading knowledge. The teacher could have a bag of items to represent what the moose gets each time he wants something and if a student guesses it right, she could pull it out of the bag! The lexile level for this book is AD590L and I feel this book would be good for students in first grade! It could be a book the teacher reads to their students in a suspenseful tone!

Duck! Rabbit!
Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal,Tom Lichtenheld

This book is a fun book to read with kids! I enjoyed that the book kept you guessing and never actually took a side. This let the reader to create their own interpretation using clues from the story. The lexile level of this book is AD20L. I would use this book in a 1st grade classroom and this would be a fun and interactive way to get the children involved during story time. I could have the children hold up duck and rabbit pictures to pick the side they are on. This could also be a time they could illustrate what they believe they saw on a sheet of paper to let them express their creativity.

This book is a great children's book.  I think that it is definitely for younger kids, maybe Kindergarten would like this being read in class. This book would be good for teaching cause and effect.

What Teachers Can't Do
What Teachers Can't Do - Douglas Wood,Doug Cushman

This book is a great book for introduction into the school system.  This book would be great to use with kids to break the ice into a new classroom and new teacher.  Perfect for kindergarten and 1st would probably work best for this read.

Green Eggs and Ham
Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs and Ham is another classic book that most children are familiar with by elementary school age.  This book could easily be used when discussing likes and dislikes and how you change over time.  I would use this book in my class for 1st and 2nd graders.
