Sunday Book of the Week

Now that I have a reader we have been on a search for great age appropriate books for her to read. So here is the first post in my Sunday Book of the Week series as well as some lesson plan ideas for the book.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
Who would ever suspect that a tiny little mouse could wear out an energetic young boy? Well, if you're going to go around giving an exuberantly bossy rodent a cookie, you'd best be prepared to do one or two more favors for it before your day is through. For example, he'll certainly need a glass of milk to wash down that cookie, won't he? And you can't expect him to drink the milk without a straw, can you? By the time our hero is finished granting all the mouse's very urgent requests--and cleaning up after him--it's no wonder his head is becoming a bit heavy. Laura Joffe Numeroff's tale of warped logic is a sure-fire winner in the giggle-generator category. Felicia Bond's hilarious pictures are full of subtle, fun details.

Activities to accompany the book:
