I am an early literacy teacher. I use this book during intervention lessons with children that are at risk for reading difficulties. If you go on her website they have activities for your child to do along with the book. This is a fantastic read aloud.

This ISBN is a miniature book, no doll was with it when I bought it new at a store.
This is a very popular and cute book. My children also liked the miniature format of this book, just right for small hands.

This is a very cute book. I ordered it for my grandson who is 4. The way the book is written is amusing and he has practically memorized it. This book is one of his very favorites.

Classic book from my own childhood, and my kids adore it too. Rather a more modern take on "the house that Jack built", and so cute.

super fun book for the parents to read and good for kids learning how to read because of the repeating words.

This is a preschooler's "classic." Written by Laura Joffe Numeroff and published originally in 1985, it has charming illustrations by Felicia Bond, and is imaginative in an ideal way for many 3,4, 5 year olds who delight in the kooky little things about everyday life. Perfect for reading aloud. Numeroff followed If You Give A Mouse... with equally popular sequels. This edition is a Weekly Reader hardcover.

The illustrations are wonderful and draw the reader into a mouse sized world. The plot encourages toddlers to understand that there are consequences for every action. Toddlers will soon have this book memorized.

From Our Editors
What happens if you give a mouse a cookie? Why he'll need a glass of milk to go with it! He'll also need a straw, a napkin, a mirror--each item prompts the need for another. When the mouse is hanging a picture from a refrigerator (how did he get there?), he's reminded that he's thirsty and needs a glass of milk (uh-oh). With this milk, it's absolutely necessary to have a cookie, of course! Bond's wonderful illustrations enliven this modern day classic.

Annotation
Relating the cycle of requests a mouse is likely to make after you give him a cookie takes the reader through a young child's day.

From the Publisher
If a hungry little traveler shows up at your house, you might want to give him a cookie. If you give him a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. He'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache, and then he'll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim....

The consequences of giving a cookie to this energetic mouse run the young host ragged, but young readers will come away smiling at the antics that tumble like dominoes through the pages of this delightful picture book
