Laura Numeroff is one of my favorite children’s book authors. Her If You Give… series quickly became a family favorite after we read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie years ago.
Kids tend to enjoy the predictable text and the simple illustrations. Educators tend to love the multitude of teaching opportunities presented within each book.

I love every one of these stories and I can’t wait till I am able to share them with my new grandson. Have a Blessed day and I think we should make some Muffins and cuddle on the couch while reading this book and doing some of the activities you listed. If I can get my 9 year old son to sit still long enough to do them. Have a great day.
The activities of If You Give a Moose a Muffin is so much fun,Thank you very much!
