    1.

    5. Finally got around to reading this Thanksgiving tale than a month after the holiday Our girls weren t interested in reading this book they thought it looked too babyish for them and I kind of forgot about it until just now The narrative is humorous and has a cumulative build, adding each morsel of food to the list as the mouse spies it and puts it on top of the pile The illustrations are cartoonish and fun, too I liked the ending, although it was a bit predictable.This book was featured as one o [...]

    11. This is a holiday book that can be used to either teach how adjectives or descriptive words are used and to encourage students to use these in their writing There is also a math element to it as the mouse starts off by picking one simple pea off of the table and starts to choose just ONE thing, eventually stacking his figurative plate way to full or high if you want to do measurments With the measurement idea, the teacher could make a measurement chart in inches with cut out labeled pictures of [...]
