Another great picture book that shows what happens when a mouse goes to school with you. Various events occur, one because of another. ( )

A funny way to teach kids the reprocaitions of their actions. In this story they discuss what would happen if you brought a mouse to school with you. ( )

If You Take a Mouse to School is a great children's book. I think children will enjoy this book because it is funny and cute. This book is for elementary grade levels. ( )

I had mixed feelings about this book after reading it. I liked the illustrations were engaging and it was fun to see what the mouse would do next. First he wants to be apart of the class, then he wanted to do a science experiment and also build a house out of clay. But I didn't like that the book, in my opinion, didn't seem to have a first, middle, and last. It seemed like the mouse was all over the place doing different things in the school, but then finally ending in him going back to school. The big idea of this book is to remember to never bring a mouse to school, or else he will make sure to have crazy adventures! ( )

This is one of Laura Numeroff's, "if you give...." books. I absolutely love these books because they are just so adorable and great for children who are learning to read. I know I have said this before but I love them because they have kid friendly words which makes it easy for for them, and they also have great pictures. They are just all around great children books.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060283289, Hardcover)

Ah, mice. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. Laura Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond, creators of the bestselling picture books If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Take a Mouse to the Movies, are back with If You Take a Mouse to School. As you might imagine, there are great risks in bringing your mouse to school. For starters, he'll ask you for your lunchbox. And then a sandwich. And a snack for later. Still not satisfied, he'll want to participate in everything from math to soccer. Children and adults alike will revel in the hilarious, very cute illustrations of the mouse in the classroom: hanging from the top corner of the blackboard to spell (aptly enough) "precocious" and "adrenaline," writing "'Goodnight Mouse' by Mouse," sitting inside the boy's open backpack playing with a yo-yo, etc. This book is more episodic in nature than the truly cause-and-effect formula of the previous books: "If you give a pig a pancake, she'll want some syrup to go with it." Nonetheless, kids who know and love this rollicking read-aloud series will laugh and play to see a mouse at school. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson
