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

You give a mouse a cookie and what does he want?? Everything! This story is about all the things a mouse could possibly want if you were to give him a cookie. First a cookie, then milk! I would use this book to explore sequencing or even cause and effect! 

Lexile: AD410L

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.

The Little Engine That Could - Watty Piper,Doris Hauman,George Hauman

 

Brief Review:

The little engine that could is about a train who pulls a load up a hill and doesn’t succeed at first but keeps trying and doesn’t give up and eventually gets up the hill by believing that he can do it.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

The little engine that could, could be used in the classroom by teaching the students to always try and to never give up. The teacher could have the students write about a time in their life that they struggled with something but eventually overcame it or something they are still trying to overcome.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Accelerated Reading

3.5; Third Grade Fifth Month

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 4 because it shows the importance of never giving up which is crucial for young students to learn, so they can become their best selves.

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

A little boy shares a chocolate chip cookie with an adorable mouse, unaware of the endless requests that will follow. The cookie leads the mouse to ask for a glass of milk, which leads him to ask for a straw, which leads him to ask for a napkin, and so on and so forth. The detailed illustrations in Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie bring the story to life and allow children to determine what is happening even if they are unable to read the words. The story is fun to watch unfold and children will certainly find humor in the silly requests being made by the mouse. 

 

This book would be a great way to teach cause and effect. There are several examples found throughout the text, from beginning to end. It would also be the perfect story to practice sequencing. Students could use pictures to illustrate the sequential order of the events in the story.
