Chances are that when you run into a tough situation, you may recall the little engine that could and start chanting to yourself, "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." until you feel confident. Your parents probably told you that story based on a board book before you were old enough to have a "real" hard or soft cover book.

The Best Mouse Cookie is a board book in that tradition, and a book that I highly recommend for your youngsters (be they your children, nieces and nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews, grandchildren, or beyond). If you have ever enjoyed the Laura Numeroff/Felicia Bond classic, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, you'll be delighted to know that The Best Mouse Cookie is based on the same two characters, the boy and the mouse. The story is quite different so don't expect a variation on the theme of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

The Best Mouse Cookie has many good lessons about friendship, sharing, paying attention to details, overcoming setbacks, and looking at new activities as fun challenges. Any child who loves chocolate chip cookies and doesn't like to share will find this book to be custom built for helping to adjust that selfishness.

As the book opens, the boy is staring into a window of the little mouse house in the base of a big tree. Inside the window, the boy sees the mouse wearing a chef's hat and over-sized apron and admiring himself in the reflection from a toaster while a bag of groceries and backpack sit below. "Mouse has everything he needs to make cookies." On this page, mouse has piled all the ingredients precariously on one another atop a stool.

The mouse has a box of recipes and a boom box and sings his head off while putting the ingredients together. "He adds flour, salt, and a little music.

4.0 out of 5 stars not as fun as other Numeroff-Bond collaborations 27 Sep 2001
By audrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
Do not buy this book expecting the same hilarious adventures of "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". The same little rodent is featured, and the illustrations are excellent, but the action almost exclusively concerns the mouse's solitary baking. It is a short board book meant for the younger crowd and is entertaining, but it is strangely disjointed, particularly when one considers the fluid antics of the earlier books -- a fine introduction to the Numeroff-Bond books, but this one will not have the same staying power.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - but not the same style of "If you give a mouse..." 28 May 2001
By Nature Mom w/ 2 children + EE & Management degrees - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
If you're looking for another book like "If you give a Moose a Muffin" or "If you give a mouse a cookie" - you should know that this book is NOT written in that same style at all. There are no hilarious antics for what the mouse asks for or is reminded of next. This book was written for babies and young children, so the text is much simpler (but still clever). The illustrations are great and just what you'd expect if you've read her other popular books. This book is a wonderful way to introduce a baby or toddler to Laura's well-written series of books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colorful book that will get your baby's attention & keep it! 17 Jun 2000
By Trina Jaynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
After picking up several other books by Laura Numeroff for my older son this was a natural choice for my 8 month old. She makes easy to read stories that kids just love! My little guy loves to look at the colorful pictures and actually listens to the words when we read together! It is simple enough that even my 5 year old can read it to his younger brother and he loves the book just as much! A great first book choice for baby!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed 15 Aug 2011
By Galegao - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Cute if only because a mouse is baking (burning) cookies.
Annoying because it feels like a few pages are missing.
It's a little disjointed and non-sequiter near the end. I'm sure the publishers and author realized this but decided people would buy it anyway and forgive them because it's about a mouse who bakes(burns) cookies.
Here's how it unfolds and ends:
Mouse plops cookie dough on cookie sheets.
Mouse is worn out from making cookie dough.
Mouse falls asleep on a rug with cookies in the oven. (I guess the page where he puts them in the oven is missing)
Cookies burn.
Lots of smoke.
Mouse throws burnt cookies out of mouse house window.
Next page: "Oh well, you can never have too many cookies." with picture of Mouse eating lots of cookies in front of a massive stack of unburnt cookies.
Huh? More missing pages? I thought he just threw burnt cookies out the window and had NO cookies. I'm confused. Maybe because I'm an adult and I like things to make sense.
Oh well. As long as you share unburnt cookies with friends it doesn't matter how they magically appeared.
The end. (Mouse is laying on his back and stuffed with cookies, crumbs all around).

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Laura Numeroff 22 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
As a BIG fan of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, and If You Give a Pig a Pancake, I was thrilled to discover the Best Mouse Cookie Ever so that I could introduce my 18 month old niece to Ms. Numeroff's work. My niece isn't quite ready for the longer, more complicated stories but this book she truly adores (she points to it and says "More" everytime I put it down)! This book is as charming and delightful as all of Ms. Numeroff's others. And the illustrations by Ms. Bond are enchanting as always! I am not sure who enjoyed it more, my niece or myself!
