I love her style of writing! She is very kid friendly and makes the book fun for children to read. She always loops the beginning of the story back around to the end. For example she starts the book off by saying, "if you bring a mouse to the movies, he's going to want some popcorn" then at the end of the book she ropes it back around and writes, "if you give a mouse some popcorn chances are he's going to want to go to the movies". Her style of writing is very unique because most of the books she writes are all to do with animal characters. As you can tell, this book is about a mouse who wants to go to the movies. ( )

If you Take a Mouse to the Movies is a very predictable book. It’s about a mouse who if you give him something he will want something or want to do something related on what you give him and it goes on like that throughout the whole book. A teacher could use this book in her classroom for an easy read for children. There are also several of books related to this one that a teacher could have a theme in their library in the classroom. The illustrations in this book are more on the simple side and have a lot of white space. But even though the illustrations are simple they still keep the reader interested. ( )

A holiday twist on the traditional "if you give" plot line, this books starts at the movies, and quickly moves through a winter wonderland of adventures such as building a snowman and decorating a tree.

love, love, love Laura Numeroff and her circular tales! This one is no less entertaining than her earlier "If You..." stories. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060278676, Hardcover)

Welcome to the hilariously hypothetical world of Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond. Everything has an impact on everything else in this world, so if you take a mouse to the movies, don't be surprised if you find yourself being run ragged by the exuberant little fellow's increasingly grand appetites. When we first met him in Numeroff and Bond's tremendously popular If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, he had more energy than a 2-year-old on lollipops. Now, in the excitement of the Christmas season, he's unstoppable. Going from movie theater to Christmas tree lot to the neighbor's yard for snowmouse-building, he's a very demanding mouse indeed--in only the best way, of course.

The freshness of the If You Give a... series is diminished only slightly as the sequels pile up. The dazed and earnest look on the face of the mouse's long-suffering friend makes a marvelous foil for the mouse's high-spirited expressions. Adult readers will chuckle as they recognize the ephemeral passions of a child, while children will simply love the unfolding chain of events. A perfect Christmas read-aloud for the impetuous youngster on your list. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

Taking a mouse to the movies can lead to letting him do other things, such as making a snowman, listening to Christmas carols, and decorating the Christmas tree.
