The moose becomes more daring and troublisome as the day goes on. Although he causes a lot of chaos, it is hard to imagine kicking him out of the house because he is so endearing. The cartoonish pictures, hilarious situations, and rhyming words make this book of great interest to children.

"If You Give a Moose a Muffin" Follow the Tracks Mystery Game

The moose in the story "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" left tracks and messes wherever he went. Point out the things in the pictures he left behind as evidence that he had been there. When your children are out of the room place moose tracks around your room that the children can follow from one area to another. Leave evidence of what the moose had done or gotten into. Discuss with the children what they think happened while they were out of the room. For example:

Set up tracks coming through the door. You can use washable brown paint that looks like mud or cut track shapes (PDF Pattern) from brown construction paper. Have the tracks go to a muffin wrapper with crumbs left behind, then over to the sink where they find soap and water all over the counter. Then they can lead to an easel where a picture of a moose family has been painted. You can then leave different colors of tracks because the moose has paint on his hoofs that lead to a desk where he writes something and then maybe to the pencil sharpener. Leave the pencil in the pencil sharpener and have the prints lead out another door. Maybe make them farther apart like he was running. You can also leave brown hairs behind. (Hair cut from fake fur material.) Talk about how one thing led to another. Write down the sequence of events on the board or have your children write them down.
