I loved this book! I used to read this series when I was younger and thought they were so funny! I liked how this book is engaging throughout the story because it keeps the reader guessing what the moose will want next. For example, if the moose wants a muffin he's going to want jam but before that is revealed he could want anything to go with his muffin! I also liked the pictures because they are so descriptive and help tell the story. For example, when the moose is cold and puts on a sweater it shows a picture of him trying to fit into a sweater! This book is such a fun and cute story to read.
I feel the main idea of the book is to always help others and every action comes with a consequence meaning there is always going to be an action that follows what you do. ( )

If you give him a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it. When he's eaten all your muffins, he'll want to go to the store to get some more muffin mix. ( )

This book is about a moose and a boy who "gives the moose things" and every time that the moose gets one thing then he wants something else.

This would be good in the classroom to learn about cause and effect.

K-3rd grade. ( )

This whole series of these books are my favorite because they are silly and repetitive. I enjoy these books because they are a simple read and show a humor to something unrealistic and imaginative. Great for 6 and above age groups. ( )

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
