9780694006304: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Book and Tape

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.

If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to want a glass of milk. If you play the knee-slapping, toe-tapping song "The Mouse Cookie," he's going to want to get up and dance.

This delightful story about an energetic mouse and an accommodating little boy is now available in a miniature hardcover edition, packaged with a delightful, completely original audiocassette. The tape includes:

  • "The Mouse Cookie," a hip hop song that will make you want to get up and dance!
  • A one-of-a-kind reading of the story by actress Carol Kane.
  • "Wrong Words," a hysterically funny song that will inspire many goofy guesses and giggles.
  • A brief telling of how this favorite picture book came to be, just for kids.
  • An interactive "fill in the blanks" game.

Review:

Who would ever suspect that a tiny little mouse could wear out an energetic young boy? Well, if you're going to go around giving an exuberantly bossy rodent a cookie, you'd best be prepared to do one or two more favors for it before your day is through. For example, he'll certainly need a glass of milk to wash down that cookie, won't he? And you can't expect him to drink the milk without a straw, can you? By the time our hero is finished granting all the mouse's very urgent requests--and cleaning up after him--it's no wonder his head is becoming a bit heavy. Laura Joffe Numeroff's tale of warped logic is a sure-fire winner in the giggle-generator category. But concerned parents can rest assured, there's even a little education thrown in for good measure: underneath the folly rest valuable lessons about cause and effect. Felicia Bond's hilarious pictures are full of subtle, fun details. Fans will be happy to know that this dynamic author-illustrator pair teamed up again for If You Give a Moose a Muffin and If You Give a Pig a Pancake. (Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
