CAUSE AND EFFECT (MOJI & FERLI)
Teaching Cause and Effect with Picture Books
Teaching kids cause and effect develops critical thinking skills important for all ages of children — from the 2-year-old deciding not to run across the street to the year-old deciding how to handle peer pressure. We hope these books guide kids into many thoughtful conversations that spill over into their daily lives. Before you read, remind kids what cause and effect mean. Cause refers to what caused something to happen; effect is what happened as a result of the cause. You may need to provide examples to make this clear before you read. In other cases, one cause sets off a chain reaction which can lead to multiple effects or multiple cause and effect scenarios.
