We adore Laura Numeroff's "If You Give..." books about a MouseMoose and Pig who ask for favors and keep wanting more and more!It's so much fun to think about what would happen if you gave a mouse a cookie, took him to the movies, or even to schoolMake this delicious-looking sandwich that can be built, rebuilt, and rearranged and have a fun sandwich-building experience again and again.

Make Way for Ducklings, by Robert McCloskey is one of my all time favorite books for many reasons.  The illustrations are nostalgic and sweet and they show Boston landmarks like the Public Garden and the Charles River the way they looked almost 75 years ago!   As a child I loved going to visit the Public Garden and seeing the bronze statues dedicated to the book - they made the story feel so alive.  To make story come alive at home, try making these duckling magnets.
