I thought this was cute. I liked that the heroine liked herself as she was. She wasn't perfect and she didn't have a husband or kid but she was good doing her.
We'll see what happens now the potential love interest came to town.
I was screaming at her the whole time leading up to the murderer reveal. I don't know how she didn't see that coming from a mile away. But it all worked out in the end (of course).
I'm looking forward to trying the cookie recipes given in the book. I hope they're good.
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.
I love how this book keeps the reader wondering what the mouse is going to ask for next all because he wanted a cookie to begin with. It also kind of makes you not want to ever give a mouse a cookie, but who could not resist this cute little mouse character. I would use this book in my classroom for a cause and effect lesson. I would also read the story and have a cookie day as well.
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!
