Today’s storytime with Make and Takes brings us to the book my son and I just finished reading, The Curse of the Cheese Pyramid by Geronimo Stilton. It’s an adventurous chapter book, part of the Geronimo Stilton series.
As I mentioned earlier in my Chapter Book post, my son received this book on CD and had previously listened to it on his own. I wanted to know what it was all about too, so we checked it out from our local library and read it aloud together. It involves a mouse named Geronimo, who owns a newspaper company and travels the world having exciting stories to write about.
To celebrate this book, we made our own Cheese Pyramids. I cut up some cheese squares, ready for building. I just happened to have Swiss cheese too, perfect for the holes that the Cheese Pyramid has in the book.
My son also drew a picture of a cute little mouse, cut it out, and it lived in the pyramid for a time. We also had fun eating our cheese pyramids with crackers at the end of building. It was fun to read together and then celebrate the book with cheese.
