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 beyond its 60th 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.

An avid animal lover and foodie, Laura's released her newest book RAISING A HERO. It is the first of the Work for Biscuits series celebrating dogs with incredible jobs.

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.

With the release of her latest book, RAISING A HERO, Laura actively supports CANINE COMPANIONS FOR INDEPENDENCE, a non-profit organization providing service dogs to children, adults and veterans with disabilities. Laura also donates a portion of her book royalties to FIRST BOOK, a non-profit organization that provides brand new books to children who otherwise would not have access to them. She donated all royalties from THE HOPE TREE- KIDS TALK OUT ABOUT BREAST CANCER, to the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

When not writing, Laura takes French lessons, reads to children in hospitals and considers herself a book and movie fanatic.

Format: Board book
I thought this would be a story line similar to "If you give a mouse a cookie" but, it wasn't that at all. There is no story at all. It's just each page counting from 1-10 with that number of objects on each page. This is my favorite author of all times but this book REALLY fell short!

If you love the "If you give a mouse a cookie" books - this is not it! It is pretty much a very simple counting book. Not what I was hoping to show my 4 and 5 year olds. It is not very long and the pages are very sturdy, so it would be great for a toddler. My boys were not that impressed with it and neither was I.

We love the "If you give" books and thought this would be a great addition to our library. I was very disappointed when it arrived and I went to read it to my kids. There isn't a story. It's just very few words per page and a very basic counting book. Would not recommend it in the future.

My 2 1/2 year old twins love If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and always want to read it before bedtime. We decided to add a few more Mouse books to their collection and chose this one. I am a bit disappointed because I thought it was going to be a story about Christmas; instead, it's a counting book. Regardless, it's still great to read to them because it will help with counting and we can point out some of the different decorations that go on a Christmas tree. I love the board book format because it's sturdy enough to withstand the toddler years. I recommend buying this book for any Mouse fan but just know it's not really a story as much as it is a counting book.

I have seen a lot of negative reviews for this book. I can understand the reason for the negative feedback. The "If you give a..." series are wonderful children's books. They are witty and fun to read. Merry Christmas, Mouse! is a completely different book, with a different style. It is more appropriate for younger children or as a book for beginning-readers. With that in mind, it's a nice Christmas book to read to children over the holiday season.

The Turkeybird Speaks(My 3 year old son):
"Soldiers! Rockets! 5...6...7. Counting and the Mouse from some of my favorites like The Best Mouse Cookie makes this so much fun. I'm really just more impressed that Mouse thought to make sure to put Rockets on his Christmas tree. Great minds think alike. Although, I think I would have also added some tractors as well."

Mom's Two Cents:
"I love this series of books, not just the Mouse but all of the animals. When I was young my own mother actually went to one of the first book signings I can remember and it was for the original If You Give A Mouse A Cookie book. Out of all the books though, this is not my favorite. It seemed a little basic, but if your little one is just learning to count this could make it very fun. The Turkeybird really does get into all of the fun items Mouse adds to the tree. I'm not so sure that this would be a great book for a four year old, as I expect the Turkeybird to grow out of this after this Christmas season. All in all a fun book for little counters to have some fun learning to incorporate numbers into everyday activities."
