If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Joffe Numeroff
If a moose eats a muffin, he’ll want jam, and then more. He might get cold and need a sweater, that may make him think of sock puppets. To put on a puppet show, he’ll need to make the scenery, if he scares himself it may knock over the paints he was using. He will clean it up with a sheet, while hanging the on the clothesline, he will see the blackberry bush that reminds him of the wonderful jam, then he might want another muffin.
This is a good picture book that runs the story into a loop. The loop show consequences to actions taken and how one thing leads to another. This is a good series for the purpose of showing how the things we do effect so many other things in our lives. Easy read for a quick story with a moral and the kids enjoy all the trouble the pig finds to get into.
