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

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a story about a generous boy sharing a cookie with a mouse. By sharing the cookie, the boy started a chain of events that keeps him busy all day. Children find the story humorous and can identify the wants and needs of the mouse. As a teacher, I would have students (lower grades) to create a sequencing map or have students act out each part and determine the placement of each part. For the higher grades, I will use this story to introduce cause and effect, which students can apply to other subjects and real world experiences.

A Great First Day Book.
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat is so much fun to read aloud with your students. They can use inferences to determine where Pete is throughout the book and sing along with the jingle that Pete sings. It is a great book to wipe out those worrisome fears and engage your students. Students could complete a cause and effect handout and then create their own Pete the Cat with his own school shoes. You could even create a class book, such as this, https://www.pinterest.com/pin/5911043234398880/ .

The Fortune Tellers
The Fortune-Tellers - Lloyd Alexander,Trina Schart Hyman

AR: 4.6

Grade Level: K-2nd

Summary: The Fortune Tellers is about a carpenter who thought his life would stay the same. So he often wondered, hmmm. What will my fortune hold? He then goes to a fortune teller to see what his fortune is, which eventually comes true.

Idea: The Fortune Tellers introduces a series of cause and effect relationships. It also introduces vocabulary that many children may not have encountered yet. I will most definitely be using this book for a lesson on context clues. A fun activity that I would like to include with this book would be writing to your future self. We would not so much be telling our fortunes, but instead seeing where we want to be in the near future.

The Lorax
The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

He speaks for the trees! I love this vibrant work by Dr. Seuss. I think most of the charm of this book comes from the usage of made-up words. Seuss's made up characters make children giggle and use their imagination! I could use this book for all kinds of activities! I would love to read this on Earth Day. I think it would be great for students to research pollution and its effects on the environment after reading this text. Another great activity for young readers to try is a cause and effect study like the one I found here:
