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

If You Give a Moose a Muffin is a fun story about a moose that is given a muffin, then wanting jam to go with it, then he'll want to go to the store to get more muffin mix. I read this story along with If You Give a Mouse a Cookie when I was a child, and I enjoyed both of these stories.

 

This book would be great to use in a kindergarten or first grade classroom. You could either do a lesson on cause and effect, or sequencing. For cause and effect, you can together make a cause and effect anchor chart and determine which events in the stories are caused or affected by which. You could also make a sequencing anchor chart and have the students put the events in order.

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

This book is a great string of events starting with “if you give a mouse a cookie…” Each new event leads to another, until the story ends up back where it started. There are more renditions of it, like: If You Give a Moose a Muffin and more.

 

 

In the classroom, this book would work really well for teaching cause and effect.

A Bad Case of Stripes
A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon
AD540L

 

Pre k - 2

A Bad Case of Stripes is about a little girl who is not like the rest of the students in her class.  She loves lima beans but does not eat them because the rest of her friends do not like them.  Camilla wants to blend in with the rest of the students, but she can't because she begins to change colors.  Camilla eventually realizes that she does not have to be like the rest of the kids in her class.  She only needs to be herself.   I would use this in my classroom to teach cause and effect.  Because Camilla wanted to fit in and did not eat her lima beans, she got sick and turned colors.  It could also be used to teach respect and acceptance of the differences of others.

5 stars

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

Even today, "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" is one of my favorite books. This is the story of a mouse that always asks for something which leads him to ask for more. This book is appropriate for ages K-2 and is Lexile Level AD660L. I have seen other teachers do a cause and effect tree after reading this book, and I would do the same. This book is also great for just enjoyable reading. Great read!

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

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2

Lexile Level: AD590L

This book is a very interesting story about all the consequences you will have to face if you give a moose a muffin. It is an adorable story that describes what event will follow the one before based all on what will happen if you give a moose a muffin. I would use this book in my classroom to teach cause and effect. This book is great for a cause and effect lesson because it uses key words such as "if" and "then" that will help students better understand cause and effect.
