Why I Love This Book
I've been teaching for a long time. Here's my proof: this was a hot new title just before I entered the classroom. I was obsessed with it and created all kinds of activities around this book for what was then my first grade classroom. I honestly can't believe it's been around for over 35 years!
Interesting fact, this book was turned down 9 times before Numeroff found a publisher. Crazy right?
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie was the beginning of what is now a very successful 17 book series. The series has sold over 5 million copies and has been printed in 14 different languages.
I only discovered the animated series while researching for this post, but it's cute if you haven't seen it yet.

Adding an element of play is yet another way to deepen the understanding of the concepts introduced within the multiple readings of the story. You'll be surprised at the amount of learning that's transferred and reinforced through imaginative play.
