Way Back Wednesday! If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

Rembember when you were a kid, that was a while ago for me, your favorite books that you just couldn't live without? Have you forgotten what it's like to read them again? Well, each week I will take you back in time. It could be as far back as a year ago or maybe even ten or twenty years. I will provide a little history about the book and where it is on the shelf today. I hope you enjoy the flashback!

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (ISBN 0-06-024586-7) is the title of a 1985 book illustrated by Felicia Bond. It is the tenth and best-known book written by Laura Numeroff. Its plot deals with a boy who gives a cookie to a mouse, which in turn asks for various other favors. At length this leads back around to the mouse wanting another cookie. The book features two characters, a mouse and a boy. Neither character speaks, but their dialogue is reported indirectly by a narrator.

The main character of this story, Mouse, appears in three others: If You Take a Mouse to the Movies, If You Take a Mouse to School, and The Best Mouse Cookie.

The book was so popular that it inspired the If You Give a series, which includes If You Give a Pig a Pancake, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, and If You Give a Bear a Brownie.

What is the current rating for this book? I'm glad you asked, according to the popular books sites this little mouse has a 4/5 rating still. It's wonderful and so much so there is a series. I loved this book and my kids who are now in their 20's still love it to this day.

I would love to read your comments!

I hope you will stop by Kristi's Book Nook store. I appreciate your support.
