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

This book is about giving a mouse a cookie and this event leading to him wanting more and more each time. I would use this in my classroom by demonstrating order of events and how we are always wanting more when we get something. I would create more sequences of events and separate the class into groups and give them a list of cause and effect situations. They will be assigned to placing the cause to the effect and then acting out their favorite one. When I first saw the book, I was thinking the book could be on a second to third grade level because of the sequence of events. The Lexile Level is AD660L.

Wanting More
Wanting More - Jessica Ruddick Wanting More - Jessica Ruddick There's rebellion on both sides. Josh hates following the rules. Bri wants to feel the rush of stepping away from her good girl persona. Wanting More is more complex than a good girl going bad. Josh needed to set priorities and learn how to focus on accomplishing them. Bri needed to learn their was more to experience than grades and school. I received an ARC of Wanting More by Jessica Ruddick via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Cute romance, although it felt like an afterschool special sometimes.

I Wanted Something More
Wanting Something More - Kathy Love

I bought this with a Kobo 90% off coupon, and I think I want my $.42 back.

 

After enjoying the first two books in this series, I was really curious about how the slimy character Nathaniel was going to be reformed into a hero. That issue was resolved in an unusual way: after being attacked and having a near-death experience, Nate is no longer the callous, obnoxious person he once was.  But he was very nasty to heroine Marty in high school, and she has trouble believing in his reform.

 

What bothered me was the very classist way in which Nate's change is expressed: he used to be a good ole boy, but now women in tight clothes and heavy make-up aren't classy enough for him. I think there's an attempt to create some balance between the depiction of all bad, "trashy" characters and all good "classy" characters, but it felt pretty feeble.

 

The plot was also heavily melodramatic and then dwindled away into nothing at the end. If you're going to do melodrama, you need to have some follow-through and payoff.

I could have sworn there was more of them, but I am pretty sure they hadn't been out long when I read them. I was 7 when they came out, and I think I was around 9 when I read them (reading at about an 8th grade reading level.) I loved the girls, and looking back, I think they, and what they went through, were really realistic.
