Mice and Beans
Genre: Fantasy-characters in a fantasy do or say things that cannot happen in real life.
Asking the following questions helps us learn more about the characters: 
1) What does the character say?
2) What do the character do?
3) How does the character feel?
Standard: RL.1.2 Retell stories including key details,
and demonstrate understanding of their central message or lesson.
* Remember*- you and your child can listen to these being read aloud by going to youtube.com and typing in the title of the book. By doing this you can talk about the characters and how they are feeling in the story. Point out the mice on the cover wearing clothes and glasses. Discuss that mice would not do that in real life.
