Product Description
This 21 page novel study covers the first book in Lindsey Leavitt's Commander in Cheese series, The Big Move. My students loved this adorable book and the fun reading response activities! They giggled through the whole book and learned a lot along the way. The entire book occurs on "Moving Day", so it's the perfect book to read as we approach an inauguration and President's Day.

Summary:
"If you are a mouse, then you might know about Ava and Dean Squeakerton. They are kind of famous, for mice. That’s because Ava and Dean and the rest of their family live in the White House. It's Inauguration Day and a new president is moving into the White House, and best of all . . . kids too! That means cool kid treasures for Ava and Dean Squeakerton. Maybe they’ll even find a Lego! There’s only one problem. . . . Sneaking around means Ava and Dean will each have to be as quiet as a . . . mouse. And the Squeakerton siblings aren’t so good at that. But moving day is so busy, nobody would notice two mice searching for toys . . . right?"
Ava and Dean share facts from history within the story, and in the back of the book are facts for kids about famous Inauguration Days in history. I first heard about this book from Macy, the cute little girl featured on Ellen who is obsessed with presidents.
