More About the Author

Laura Numeroff grew up in Brooklyn, with her mother, father and two older sisters. Her house was filled with books, art, music and folk dancing.

She attended Pratt Institute and graduated with a degree in communications and a contract for her first children's book, AMY FOR SHORT, published in 1975 by Macmillan.

A New York Times best-selling children's book author, Laura is best known for the series based on her book IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE. First printed in 1985, "Mouse" is in its 40th printing. The fourth book in the series, IF YOU TAKE A MOUSE TO THE MOVIES was on the New York Times Children's Best Seller list for five months- nine weeks at number one.

Publisher's Weekly listed IF YOU TAKE A MOUSE TO THE MOVIES as the number two book for children in 2000 (Harry Potter was number one) and at one point, Laura had three books on the New York Times Bestseller List in the same week.

In 2000, IF YOU GIVE A PIG A PANCAKE was featured on the Oprah show three times, and was recommended by Oprah's first kids' book club, as well as being noted as Oprah's favorite children's book of the year on her Christmas show. "PIG" was also on Publisher's Weekly Bestseller List for over a year. In addition, the series has sold over 4.5 million copies, been printed in fourteen languages, and won the prestigious Quill Award in the picture book category.

Some of Laura's other books currently in print are: WHAT MOMMIES DO BEST/WHAT DADDIES DO BEST, DOGS DON'T WEAR GLASSES, THE CHICKEN SISTERS, WHY A DISGUISE? The first two books in Laura's JELLYBEANS book series made the New York Times Best Seller List.

Hillary Clinton, President Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush have all read Laura's books to kids. First Lady Michelle Obama, her mother, her daughters, Malia and Sasha read Laura's book at the 2010 Easter Egg Roll on the White House Lawn. Laura was one of ten children's authors invited to a literacy day in Washington during the Bush administration in 2001. She has also visited over 100 elementary schools and has been a speaker at teacher conferences around the country.

Laura donates book sales to FIRST BOOK, a non-profit organization that provides brand new books to children who otherwise would not have access to them. She has also donated all royalties from THE HOPE TREE- KIDS TALK OUT ABOUT BREAST CANCER, to the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Laura has appeared on The Today show twice as well as Good Morning America. On her December 13th, 2000 appearance on The Today Show, Laura donated 500 Mouse mini-books with doll ornaments to the show's toy drive.

When not writing, Laura takes tennis lessons (she says she's not very good but loves it anyway), reads to children in hospitals and foster homes and calls herself a book and movie fanatic.

Format: Board book
I am really surprised at how many negative reviews there are for this book. This is not in the same line of books as the "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" one by the same author, despite having the same character. These are geared for babies and young toddlers. (Hence the BOARD book, as another reviewer commented. Board books are not typically intended for older children.)

My daughter loves this book and laughs every time you open it to the "Who's at the door?" page.

These are great books for babies.

I bought the book based on the fact that it was advertised as coming from the series "if you give..." but when I read it to my daughter it wasn't anything like it at all. Yes it has the same author and the same illustrator but I felt it was purely a way to make money. If you're buying it as purely a valentines book then you're fine but if you're buying it because you love the range of books then save your money.

This book fell short of my expectations. The story is overly simplistic, with barely one sentence per page. Cute if it's your first "Mouse" book, but I think you will be disappointed otherwise.

Format: Board book
‘Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse!' written by Laura Numeroff and nicely illustrated by Felicia Bond brings a humorous story about very special celebration of Valentine’s Day in which leading characters are cute Mouse and his friends.

Given that I did not read previous successful title ‘If You Give a Mouse a Cookie’ I cannot compare but for very youngest readers this book certainly will be fun and appealing providing many situations for good laugh.

It's Valentine's Day and our hero Mouse is planning to celebrate it with all of his friends. Therefore he is going to create a valentine for each of his many friends – cat, pig, fox, moose, dog and bunny - probably known characters from previous book. Mouse in the end of story will be surprised by his friends who are coming in for a party with a warm presents…

As previously written this book is intended for the youngest kids, therefore text is short and easy to understand, providing children the opportunity to easily recognize the characters which obviously appeared in other books of Mouse series.

Therefore ‘Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse!' can be fully recommended for these days just before Valentine's Day if you want to play through reading with your young reader, trying to show what Valentine’s Day is. But even after this special day for lovers will be behind us, children will enjoy this humorous picture book.

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
Very simplistic storytelling with charming illustrations about a creative mouse making various Valentines for his closest animal friends and each page describing what he sees in them with the final page having all his friends visiting him before he has a chance to deliver them. Nice hardcover with very thick page boards for a thoughtful Valentine gift.
