Additionally, children can explore the line between when it is a good thing to help someone without asking for anything in return and when helping others without getting anything back is unfair.
Is it always good to help others? First graders can reflect on selflessness and its application to their daily lives. Did the mouse choose to have a glass of milk after eating the cookie?
Or did he have to do it because he was thirsty? Could the mouse have asked for something else to drink? When do you feel like you are the one making a decision? When do you feel like someone else is making decisions for you?
What did you do when you woke up this morning? Did someone tell you to do so? Or did you just decide to do it? When we do something, is it like a tree that falls over in a strong wind?
Are the mouse and the boy friends? How so? What else could this relationship be if they are not friends and neither parent nor child?
Does the mouse ever do anything for the boy? Should he?
What do your parents do for you? You'll have to fix up a little box for him with a blanket and a pillow. He'll crawl in, make himself comfortable and fluff the pillow a few times.
He'll probably ask you to read him a story. So you'll read to him from one of your books, and he'll ask to see the pictures. When he looks at the pictures, he'll get so excited he'll want to sign his name with a pen.
Then he'll want to hang his picture on your refrigerator. Which means he'll need Scotch tape. He'll hang up his drawing and stand back to look at it.
Looking at the refrigerator will remind him that he's thirsty. And chances are if he asks you for a glass of milk, he's going to want a cookie to go with it.
When we were very young, there was a time when this book entertained and made us laugh; we did not think anything else of it.
