If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
by Laura Numeroff; illustrated by Felicia Bond 

If a hungry mouse shows up on your doorstep, you might want to give him a cookie. And if you give him a cookie, he'll ask for a glass of milk. He'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache, and then he'll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim...

We love the "If You Give..." series and this is the first one! To see some books in this series, click the link above or see the image at left.

We read this book when teaching retelling. First we have the kids make the simple and cute mouse 'puppets' (shown at left, found at here). Then we read the story to the class, and then we retell the story together, with the kids playing the part of the mouse and the teacher saying "If I give you a _____, you'll probably say..." and the kids respond by holding up their puppets and calling out "I want a ____".
