Feature Book: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

                  If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (If You Give...)                                                                                                         
 We have been reading If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff this week during school to complement our theme of cookies.  It is a very cute book that follows just what might happen if you gave a mouse a cookie, and it turns out that you would probably end up just where you started!  It is a great book for introducing the concept of cause and effect to little inquiring minds. The words are simple and easy for little ones to remember. The illustrations keep you looking to notice the references to previous pages. It is silly, imaginative, and answers perfectly the question asked in its title. A great book for preschoolers!

Trevor’s review of the book: “Mom, this is my favorite book. I love reading this book.”

Trevor says that he “loves” a lot of things (especially reading!), but he has never deemed a book his favorite before.

I was recommended this book off of a list of 1000 Good Books  over at http://www.classical-homeschooling.org I love the site and the list of books!
