Moira's birthday party is one of confusion and chaos, with swarms of kids everywhere in the house. Worried that they cannot feed all of them, Moira orders 200 birthday cakes and pizzas from local businesses to solve the problem. Worried about the mess, Moira offers her presents as bribes.
While utterly silly, children relate to the story because of the presents and the birthday cakes. I've read this story aloud in all grade levels, and even the older kids get a giggle from this one.
For teachers (and parents wanting activities, here are a couple of ideas:
1) Munsch's books are great for studying cause and effect. Have the kids note Moira's attempts to solve the problems, and the result of her solutions.
2) Estimate how much food everyone in the school would eat if they came to a birthday party. Check with the cafeteria to see if the classes numbers match up!
3) At the end of the story, Moira has a "normal" party. Have kids describe that party, and compare/contrast it with the first one.
4) Have groups of students plan a party for Moira. Who would be invited? What would they eat? Come up with a plan for the party, and a budget for the cost.
I highly recommend "Moira's Birthday" as a fun, engaging read!
And as usual, the book features a diverse cast, which is always nice.
