If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

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

This is the story of the chain of events that happen after you give a mouse a cookie. After the boy gives his mouse a cookie, the mouse just wants more and more things, and at the end of the story, we see that this is just a cycle, because "if you give him a glass of milk, he's just going to want a cookie to go with it."


This book would be great to introduce cause and effect to students. The students could do an activity that involves them sequencing the story's events by matching the effect to the cause.
