If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (If You Give...) Hardcover – October 6, 2015
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
“A light confection as suited for use in preschool story hours for beginning readers.” (SLJ.)
“The rhythmic text and circular logic of the award-winning If You Give series makes this a favorite for kids and grown-ups alike.” (Brightly)

Some reviewers have complained that this book sends a negative message about welfare, people expecting from society, etc.. I think these people have to lighten up - it is simply a funny story aimed at young children.
"If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" is just one book in Laura Numeroff's collection of children's literature books and this, much like the others, does not disappoint. I highly recommend this for children who are learning to read books with bigger words and concepts, but its still great for the younger children too. Parents who are trying to find an engaging book for their children should look no further, this book honestly has everything.
One of the pages of the book was stuck together. The pictures of the mouse were really small in most of the pages. Not sure my toddler son can spot it. I prefer the mouse size ratio in another book I bought that is the same size as these books (The Best Mouse Cookie).
