Laura Joffe Numeroff’s respective titles, If You Give a Mouse A Cookie and If You Give a Moose a Muffin, both wonderfully illustrated by Felicia Bond, presents the additive conundrum – what happens when you give an animal a baked good? Hilarious from start to finish, Numeroff explores how a small mouse, and then a large moose, end up overtaking the life of a young boy. As everyone knows (or at least by the conclusion of each story), a mouse who asks for a cookie will surely require a glass of milk as well, while a moose with a love for muffins will absolutely need jam to spread upon said muffin. Each request from the respective animals bequeaths another logical want, and young readers will delight in the eager energy of the two animals as they run roughshod over their considerate host. By the end, the full circle continuum will have kids rushing back to the beginning of Numeroff’s story, mesmerized. Both tales are infinitely friendly reads, especially for first time readers.
