If You Take a Mouse to School is about a mouse who asks for a lunch box, pencil box, and backpack. But then with that, he will want a sandwich, pencils, notebooks, and maybe even a backpack, too. This is a fun book for Kindergarten-2nd grade, but would be fun to read during the first week of school. A writing activity to go along with this book, is to have the students imagine that they were a mouse. Ask them to write about what they would take to school and have time for shared reading.
