If You Give A Mouse A Cookie is a cute picture book about a mouse who goes to get a cookie from a friend. After he gets his cookie, the mouse wants to do other activities because of the previous events. At the end of the story, the mouse asks for a cookie and the process starts all over again. I like this book because it has cute illustrations. I also think that the topic of animals and food will grab the attention of younger students. The version of the book I have is huge, which makes the text easier for all students to see. ( )

Cause and effect, this then that. ( )

This is a humorous story of how one thing leads to another when a hungry little visitor shows up! It may seem innocent enough to share a cookie with a mouse, but this little rodent clearly continues to :need” things beyond his cookie!

This is a great book. I can relate to the boy in the book by being exhausted at the end of the day entertaining the mouse just as I do my nieces and nephews. The moral of the story I get is if you give something, some children do not know how to stop asking for more. And the cookie has a lot of sugar in it , so that hypes the mouse up and he wants to be active. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060244054, Hardcover)

"If you give a moose a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it." So begins the most logical silliness to be found anywhere--at least since Laura Joffe Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Readers will follow a young boy and his voracious visitor through a series of antlered antics: jam reveries and puppet shows and big messes. It all makes perfect sense, really, once you stop to think about it. What moose wouldn't want to borrow a sweater when it's cold outside? And why shouldn't the loose button on the sweater remind him of his grandmother? Bond's cleverly detailed, witty illustrations perfectly complement Numeroff's deadpan style. Through just a few deft words and brush strokes, the reader gets a real sense of the unique personalities of the two characters. Children will relate easily to the full-circle reasoning of the story, while picking up the concept of cause and effect. The moral of the story? Keep plenty of muffin mix and blackberry jam in your cupboard. You never know who may drop by. (Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
