This is one of my favorite children books. This book is about the process of a mouse wanting a cookie. During the process, the mouse does several other tasks such as cutting his hair and cleaning up. The mouse demands a lot. This is a great book for young readers because it goes over drawing, eating, and cleaning. Such as taking care of yourself, cleaning up, and being creative. ( )

This book is about a mouse who gets a cookie from a little boy one day. The mouse then wants more and more things from the little boy. This book is really cute and can teach children about the gift of giving. The illustartions are clear and go directly with the text. I would reccommend this book to a teacher or a paret who are looking to spend quality time with a child. ( )

The mouse is given a cookie but then he wants a glass of milk. So the boy gets him a glass of milk. Then once the mouse is given the glass of milk he wants a straw. As the mouse gets something he then needs something else that goes with that item.
I would read this to 1st through 3rd grades. I would use this book to teach my students about sequencing. ( )

Book description
In Laura Joffe Numeroff, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, the mouse causes she comotion for the boy he meets outside. The story begins with his mother leving the boy home to visit their aunt. The boy decides to stay at home and read his comic book outside. As the boy reads and eats his bag of cookies, he meets the hungry, yet amable mouse. The mouse asks for a cookie, and the boy generously gives him one of his. Yet as the readers read on we see that do to this one act of kindness from the boy, the mouse continues to ask for more things. After eating the cookie, the mouse asks for a glass of milk, and then a straw, a napkin, a mirror, and such forth. The mouse shows that he can never be content with what he is given, and must ask for more. It is as if the mouse can never be fully satisfied. Even thugh the mouse seems so entusiastic and friendly, he does mess up the boy's kitchen and things. As a result, when the mother returns home from visiting the boy's aunt, the mother is not too happy. The story ends with the mouse continually asking for more things and chatting away with the mother.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060245867, Hardcover)

Who would ever suspect that a tiny little mouse could wear out an energetic young boy? Well, if you're going to go around giving an exuberantly bossy rodent a cookie, you'd best be prepared to do one or two more favors for it before your day is through. For example, he'll certainly need a glass of milk to wash down that cookie, won't he? And you can't expect him to drink the milk without a straw, can you? By the time our hero is finished granting all the mouse's very urgent requests--and cleaning up after him--it's no wonder his head is becoming a bit heavy. Laura Joffe Numeroff's tale of warped logic is a sure-fire winner in the giggle-generator category. But concerned parents can rest assured, there's even a little education thrown in for good measure: underneath the folly rest valuable lessons about cause and effect. Felicia Bond's hilarious pictures are full of subtle, fun details. Fans will be happy to know that this dynamic author-illustrator pair teamed up again for If You Give a Moose a Muffin and If You Give a Pig a Pancake. (Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
