  1. 1. Title : If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. Author : Laura Joffe Numeroff. By: Victoria Hernandez ; Marlyn morejon ; Jonathan ; Ernesto ;
  2. 2.                  Laura Numeroff was born in Brooklyn, New York and she is the youngest of three girls.   During her childhood, she loved to read and before the age of ten, she decided that she wanted to   be a writer. When Laura got older, she went to apply to Pratt University for the intention to follow     her sister's footsteps into being a fashion designer but she had no interest in it whatsoever.. After a   while, she took a course for writing and started to follow her first dream since she was a child to   becoming a writer. One homework assignment that made Laura write the story, Amy For Short, and   after meeting few rejections, it was published by Macmillian and started her career as a writer.                   She started to write the," If you Give," series and the first nine books, she wrote and   illustrated herself. Eventually, she decided that she was more of a writer than an illustrator. An   autobiography was wrote and then it was published in the year 2003. Now her most recent book   published in the 20th of September, 2008. The books that she writes are easily recognized internationally   and have in published in different languages for the enjoyment of all children.                  The one book that she wrote that made a big hit in the," If you Give," series was the book," If you   Give a Mouse a Cookie." At first, the book was rejected nine times by publishers. The story made such a big hit    that it spawned more books that expanded to include the characters of a moose, a cat, and a pig. Then, she    started to write the series," What Mommies Do Best." The book is about mothers giving piggyback rides,   teaching them how to ride a bicycle, and teaching how to sew a button on a teddy bear. All the books that she   has wrote was made for children to enjoy. About the Author

  11. 11. <ul><li>The skill lesson we worked on today was cause and effect. One thing we understand better is that two effects can come from one cause. This skill will help me be a better reader because we will understand that many things can come from one cause. we am going to remember how to use this skill by constantly reviewing and reading. One piece of advice we would give to someone working with this skill is remember what made this happen. In order to prove we will need to read more books and review this skill. One more thing we want you to know is how to teach cause and effect better. </li></ul>Skill Lesson Frame

Introduce cause & effect, show results and summarize. </li></ul>Interview Mrs. Mena
