If You Give A
Mouse A Cookie
Author: Laura Numeroff

This is the story
of a boy and his friend mouse. In the morning, mouse wants a
cookie and the boy is sent on a day long adventure.
First the boy wants a cookie and next he wants a
glass of milk. Then he wants a straw to go with the milk, a
napkin to wipe his face, and so on.
The adventures continue through a nap, a story, and
drawing a picture. Finally, Mouse wants to put his picture on the
refridgerator. "Seeing the refidgerator will remind him that he
is thirsty." Mouse will the ask for some milk. "And chances
are, he'll probably want a cookie to go with it."
Continuing the the cycle all over again.
Critical Thinking Questions:
1. If you could pick another animal to be in this
story, what would it be? What do you think he would choose to do?
2. If you were the mouse, would you do the same
things? Which ones would you do? Which would you not
do? What new activities would you do?
