If you give a mouse a cookie he'll want a glass of milk. Of course, why not? That makes sense. But he won't stop there. Oh no. What goes with a glass of milk? A straw. And when he's done he'll need a napkin. And then a mirror. And then a haircut. And then....

Anyone who has kids will be intimately familiar with the central dilemma of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Kids themselves will potentially see their own demanding ways on display and be inspired to be a little less selfish (too much to ask?) Readers will enjoy the suspense of guessing what the mouse's next absurd demand will be. A true classic with great illustrations, and a fun book all around.

  If You Give A Mouse A Cookie
Isaiah of Salem, OR, 6/2/2016
I really like this book! There's a mouse and he went from one thing to another and then there's a little boy that tried to keep up with the mouse. At the very end, the mouse wanted a cookie with his milk, just like at the very beginning.
  Great Children's Book!

I don't know what is more fun about this book; the story, or the illustrations! Be prepared to sit close together as you read about a very selfish mouse and a very obliging host. I have always liked it, but also have come away thinking that I don't want be thinking only of myself like that, because it obviously causes someone a lot of work, and does not reflect well on the mouse's character.
