Get your little readers giggling with the silly story in IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE! Besides being alot of fun, this circular story is great for beginner English students. Meaning that if you combine it with an easy (low cost/low mess) craft project like the DYI MOUSE HAND PUPPET you will have the perfect BOOK CLUB combo. One quick note about the craft: one night while surfing the internet before bed I ran across the mouse that I used in the is project. I would like to reference the blog where I saw but I can’t find it anywhere now!!!! In any case, this book is the perfect addition to our growing BOOK CLUB.
