Book Description

Oct 1994 If You Give... Books

If a hungry little traveller 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. Then he’ll want to look in the mirror to make sure he doesn’t have a milk moustache, and then he’ll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim…

You’d have thought that after all this the little mouse would be exhausted, but he is unstopable and full of ideas to keep him busy through the day!

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.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia Bond have teamed up on several children's stories. Many people will tell you that this is their favorite in the series. I slightly prefer When You Give a Moose a Muffin, but you'll have to decide for yourself by reading them both.
Having had two sons, I always found them most delightful when they were the most physically worn out. Oh, if only I had had this mouse to keep them occupied!
The boy is sitting in his front yard eating a cookie. He spies a mouse, and gives the mouse a little bite.
This is a forward mouse, though, and he asks if he might have a glass of milk to go with the cookie. The boy takes him inside and obliges. Then the mouse inquires about having a straw. The boy finds him one. Then the mouse requests a napkin. That means that he is concerned about having a milk mustache. So the mouse wants a mirror to check. While looking in the mirror, he notices that his whiskers need some trimming. He requests some nail scissors from the boy. Considerately, he then wants a broom to sweep up. But if you're going to sweep in one area, you might as well do many. While you're at it, the floors could use a good washing. That makes the mouse tired, so he needs a nap. The boy makes him a little bed out of a box and a tiny blanket and pillow. But the mouse cannot sleep without a story. Seeing the pictures, the mouse thinks what fun it would be to make some pictures. Paper and crayons must be obtained! After the picture is done, he must naturally have a pen to sign his name. Then, the boy has to get some Scotch tape so that the picture can go on the refrigerator. Then, of course, you get thirsty from all that activity. You get some milk from the refrigerator . . . and of course, it's a good idea to have a cookie. And off we go again!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My child's favorite book! 19 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Laura Joffe Numeroff is an excellent children's author! My daughter and I have read this book so many times, she can recite word for word throughout the story. The cassette tape that comes along with the story book is excellent, because after the story is read, there is a fill-in-the-blanks game. Your child fills in the blank. (example - "If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of _____.) The answer is milk. And this continues throughout the story. I highly recommend this book. No child's library should be without it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite in our house ! 23 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
My daughter and I just love to read this book together. We turn each page with anticipation,(even though we have read it hundreds of times, and know the story by heart). This book is a great read along! I would recommend that all children have a copy of this fun book. It's my personal favorite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tiny book 30 May 2012
By Sherry
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Lovely story - but the book is way too small! - Only approx.13x11cm - I had expected it to be much bigger. The group of kids that I teach fight too much to see the pictures so I don't use this book in the nursery any more. Only practical to show one child up close.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative and Fun Progression 19 July 2014
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Creative and Fun Progression

Giving a mouse a cookie might seem like a simple kindness, but you never know where it might lead. After all, milk has to go with a cookie, but somehow that leads to housework and even creating art.

Honestly, this is a book that charms. It’s a simple idea and there are very few lines per page. And yet the progression is fun (after all, the mouse helps you out, too, he's not just demanding things) and the illustrations are great.

I missed these books until recently, and if you are like me, check them out. They are simple and outlandish but fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars My toddler LOVES this book! 4 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I know this book says it's for the 3-5 year reading level, but my 20-month-old loves it. He calls it the "Mouse Cookie Book", and we originally borrowed it from the library but then had to buy one (from Amazon, of course - 4 bucks cheaper than any bookstore I have found, incidentally) to keep library overdue fines down! He wants to have this book read to him as soon as he wakes up in the morning, after his nap, before bed -- all the time, in other words! I think it's important to read books to kids above their age level. (More interesting for us, too!)

One of my all time favorites! (and I'm the Mom). We have read this book, and it's successor, If You Give A Moose A Muffin, so many times, I pretty much know them by heart. In fact, my son and I still enjoy playing a game of remembering what happens next in the car or sometimes if we are waiting in line, etc.
It makes a great memory and logical thinking exercise. We have to think of the logical consequence in order to get to the next step.
I would reommend this book as a gift to any child from birth to ? (we're still enjoying it at 6 years old)

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-HAVE FOR ALL CHILDREN!! 14 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is one of my two year olds all time favorite books. It was given to him when he was 18 months old and by the time he was 22 months old he knew the words. Now at 27 months he will finish the sentances before I have a chance to. As a Mom, this is one of my favorite books as well. It prompted us to buy "If You Give a Pig a Pancake...which we like, but not as much as this one). The illustrations are great too.
