Tools: This book is an excellent example of a basic story structure pattern of "no, no, no. yes." It can be represented in a behavior over time graph (BOTG) by asking the question, "do the animals get fed?" Students will quickly see the common story pattern and be able to compare it to other familiar stories with a similar structure.
Students could also use a BOTG to represent the number of animals that want Mrs. Field to wake up and feed them breakfast.
