"I feel certain I must have read this before at some point but I really didn't remember anything about it. I actually had a bit of a distaste built up for reading it--and now I am honestly not sure why!!! It is such a cute, fun story! I think maybe I just felt the whole thing had been over-commercialized and there are so many spin-offs now (which I also haven't read so it's not fair of me to judge!) Anyway, I think it's just the sort of story I would have liked when I was little, too--taking care of an animal, and a cute mouse at that (and all the eensy-weensy mouse-sized things, like the bed for the mouse) and the fun-filled annoyance-exhaustion of the boy as things spiral a bit out of control ;-p An adorable and super fun read!" said.

"A young boy begins his day by offering a little brown mouse a cookie. No longer happy with that, the mouse wants more; a cup of milk to quench his thirst, a napkin to wipe his face, a mirror to make sure he looks okay and so on. All common sense activities that take them on a journey around the house. Except by the end of the day the boy is worn out, the house is somewhat of a mess and the cycle begins again.

This is a cute childrens' picture book that teaches young boys and girls about sharing and caring for others. First published in 1985, this is a story that never grows old.

" This is not the kind of thing I normally read, but I was in the waiting room at the dentist while my mom was getting a root canal and I'd already finished the book I'd brought with me, as well as a Vogue magazine and the issue of Martha Stewart Living where Martha throws some weak pie-related shade at Gwyneth Paltrow. So it was either this or David Decides About Thumbsucking. Mouse it is!Long story short: if you give a mouse a cookie, you'll never get rid of him. " said.

" What a nice and well-mannered little mouse :) " said.

" This book is either an innocent fun and silly story...or its a first childhood look at conceptual social critique on the inherent consequences of social welfare... You tell me. All jokes aside, this book is adorable, with wonderful illustrations. " said.

" Well, I just reread this for the June Picture Books Club at the Children's Books group. The theme for the month of June is culinary.My favorite of this series has always been If You Give a Moose a Muffin. I like the alliteration, the moose, the humor best of all.But, this is a fun book too. I like all of Laura Joffe Numeroff's "If You..." books. They're very engaging. " said.

"'If You Give a Mouse a Cookie' is one that I would use to teach the children in my class 'cause and effect,' sequencing, and various procedures for everyday life. I enjoyed how with each occurrence the author prompted another one, which is a great way to help children to understand how items or events are paired and how one action leads to another. For example, at the beginning of the story the cookie leads to the mouse wanting milk, then in the end, after a long chain of cause and effect events, the cycle also ends with a cookie and milk. By having children guess what may happen or what they would want to happen, the story is a great gateway to classroom discussions that create higher levels of thinking in young children. " said.

" Este libro es muy famoso en inglés. Sin saberlo, se lo compré a mi hija de 3 años, ya que le gusta mucho los libros. Es una lectura de fácil compresión que trata sobre un ratón y sus interminables deseos. " said.
