Books worth reading to students

If You Give a Moose a Muffin

If You Give a Moose a Muffin Book and Audio CD Set (Paperback) - Laura Numeroff, Felicia Bond

This book is bound to keep students interested. It follows every decision a moose makes after he gets a muffin which eventually leads back to muffins. I would read this book to kindergarten and first grade. The Lexile level for this book is AD590L. This book would be good to use when teaching cause and effect to students. Another group of students did an activity with this book for their chapter presentation. The activity had a sheet of poster board with the words "Cause" and "Effect" written at the top of it. Attached to the poster board were several muffin shaped cut outs. The "muffins" had different causes and effects written on them. These came from the book. Students were given a cause or effect muffin and placed it where it belonged on the poster board. I plan to use this activity in my future classroom.
