If you give Riley a cracker,
he's probably going to want a glass of milk to go with it.
If you give him a glass of milk,
he'll probably ask for "two."
"Two" will remind of The Backyardigans, so...
he'll ask to watch an episode (or 8).
If we watch one, he'll want to watch "Pirate Treasure"
and that will remind him of the Pirate Party we went to.
He'll say "Aaaaarg!" and grab his pirate booty bag.
His bag will remind of him of the hat he wore, so.....
he'll ask to wear a hat.
His John Deere Tractor hat will remind him
of The Ranch and he'll probably want to go.
He'll want to drive the tractor and see the cows.....
and if he sees the cows, he'll probably be reminded of a glass of milk.
I had this idea after reading the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series by Laura Numeroff. While reading each of the books to my class, I was reminded of Riley and how one thing leads to another. There is usually a connection in this crazy cycle, but not always. It old my kids I was going to write one. Here's my quick, off the cuff version.
