(Picture Book 4) Laura Numeroff writes the cutest stories where a domino effect happens as request after request is made for various activities to happen or places to go. In this story the moose starts off with muffins and every page has a new idea pop up and one activity/idea leads to the next. By the of the story the moose is back to having muffins and it is what at our school we call a circle story. The story/events will just keep happening over and over. The illustrations are cute and filled with tiny thoughtful details. Sometimes there are even characters from Numeroff's other stories who show up!

Just like the other book, "If you give a mouse a cookie", this book did not disappoint. I found this book to be absolutely lovely. The humor from the moose, and the fact that the moose is eating a muffin? Too cute! Children will adore this book! ( )

I really like the little boy baking muffins, and the moose putting on the cardigan and knitting! One of the more charming entries in this series. ( )
