This book is about a boy who meets a mouse and gives it a cookie. The mouse asks for milk. After the milk, he asks for numerous things like a straw, a napkin, a mirror, a pair of nail scissors, and a broom. After that, the mouse takes a nap. He asks the boy to read him a story. Soon, he draws a picture and hangs it up on the refrigerator. Once he has done all of the busy things in his day, he wants a cookie again. The rest of the story repeats itself. This story is so entertaining that you will like to read it again and again. ( )

This book was one of my favorite childhood books that is mainly just entertainment and doesn't have much of a theme. This book is an easy read for young children and is a classic. ( )

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.
