If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

 

Brief Review:

If you give a mouse a cookie, it’s the cause and effect of giving a mouse a cookie in the first place and then having to give the mouse more and more.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

If you give a mouse a cookie could be used to show cause and effect and how things can change so quickly from one thing to the next. The teacher could have the students do a cause and effect and the sequence of events in the story.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Accelerated Reader

2.7; Second Grade Seventh Month

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 3 because it is a really cute book and it gives examples of sequencing and cause and effect would are both very useful tools for students to learn.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

This is the story of the chain of events that happen after you give a mouse a cookie. After the boy gives his mouse a cookie, the mouse just wants more and more things, and at the end of the story, we see that this is just a cycle, because "if you give him a glass of milk, he's just going to want a cookie to go with it."

 

This book would be great to introduce cause and effect to students. The students could do an activity that involves them sequencing the story's events by matching the effect to the cause.

The Lazarus Effect - H.J. Golakai

so glad I took a chance on this. I spotted it while browsing at a bookstore that I don’t visit all that often, and I’m now keeping in mind that I did see other books from the publisher - Cassava Republic Press - at that store. if these stays strong, I know where to go for follow-ups...

The Lazarus Effect - H.J. Golakai

very impressed! seemed like it was going to be confusing and jumbled, because it dropped a bunch of interconnected characters - obviously part of some complex family dynamic - but then explained the basics of the relationships, and how they relate to a disappearance and another tragedy, over the next few chapters, all while advancing the plot wonderfully. now I’ve gone from confusion, to being totally hooked on the premise and where it’s going.

The Lazarus Effect - H.J. Golakai

this seems like a good choice to tag-team with the Foreign Bodies “world tour” of mayhem. Golakai was born in Frankfurt, Germany, experienced childhood in Liberia, and has written this book which, if I understand correctly, mainly takes place in Cape Town.
