About the Book:

Children will love the little adventurer who comes asking for cookies. It is a simple, very brief read about what happens after giving a mouse a cookie. The cartoonish illustrations from Felicia Bond, with their colorful images and cheerful pictures will make them smile and laugh. It is bound to be a family favorite. Books are also available in Spanish. But remember, if you give a mouse a cookie...

Why Little Aristotle's Library Loves It:

If You Give A Mouse A Cookie is a wonderful book for children. Every time I've ever read this story to children they will laugh, giggle and try to guess what he will ask for next. Often times young boys and girls will ask for this story over and over again. It aids in their memory development because they will try to remember what comes next.

"I loved this book when I was a kid. I loved cookies and I always thought it was funny what he would ask for. I love all of her books!" --Anna K.
