Take the mouse to the movies lets visualize this together.
  jjohnsonIII9567 | Jun 7, 2018 |
This fun filled book explains what would happen if a young boy took a mouse to the movies. The mouse would want to get popcorn, then string the popcorn on the christmas tree, then make ornaments, and then hang the ornaments. Due to the fact that he is a mouse, the boy would have to help the mouse with all of these tasks. This book gave me the feeling of what it is like to be a mother. A mom would want to help her child in anything even with a crazy task. Overall, this task is hard, but the young boy never complains and will always help the mouse if he took him to the movies. ( )

responsibility if you have a pet.

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. ( )

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.
