Our Booklist: If you Give a Moose a Muffin

by Designing Mom Jackie

M is for Moose.

Graham's latest craze is moose. I just learned that the plural of moose is moose. Fancy that. I'm guessing this fascination is inspired by his current favorite read, If You Give A Moose A Muffin. Thank you Aunt Cathy. If you don't know the story, it is about a sweet little boy that entertains a gregarious moose. There are a lot of comic complications along the way, all leading back to the moose and his thing for muffins. The book is part of a series of stories about different animals and their love of sugary carbs (cats and cupcakes, mice and cookies, pigs and pancakes). We have the whole set, but the moose is by far G's preferred read of the day.

The other day Graham's teacher, Louise, put together the most adorable game for him based on the book. She made a bunch of props that correspond to the story, allowing Graham to act it out while he is reading. So so cute, I had to share it with you.

This is a truly fun and creative way to read with Graham. I am so excited to make some props for his other favorite stories. Stay tuned.

I love that idea! Both my boys would be crazy about props with their favorite books. Thanks for posting about it :)
