If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (אם תתן עוגיה לעכבר)

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Category: Hardcover (available in English and Hebrew)

Hebrew Title: אם תתן עוגיה לעכבר

Author's Name in Hebrew: לאורה ג`ופה נומרוף

Age: 1-6+ years

Synopsis: This is the first book in the series from the author of “If You Give a Moose a Muffin” and “If You Give a Pig a Pancake.” In this new classic, we meet the now famous (and quite שובב) mouse whose pursuit of cookies exhausts an ever accommodating, little boy.

Bilingual benefit: This book will warm the heart of a “cookie with milk” American child living abroad. The language flows well and the pictures are adorable. Like the Moose and Pig books, this book is a treat for toddlers, elementary school children, and new readers.

Availability in Israel: While the English version of this book is not available in Israel, it can be ordered online via Amazon. Although a Hebrew version was published in 1997 by כנרת, I have not yet been able to locate it and, thus, review it.

Previewing the book: The English version is available for preview on Amazon USA. In addition, I found someone reading the English version out loud on YouTube. (last checked 8/10/2014).

Lil guy: A regular read. Milk, please?

Mama: Highly recommended. I would buy this again and for a friend.

  1. I wish to show some thanks to you just for bailing me out of this incident. As a result of scouting throughout the the net and finding recommendations that were not helpful, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the problems you’ve sorted out all through this article is a crucial case, as well as those which may have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not discovered your site. Your ability and kindness in playing with a lot of things was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the expert and effective guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your web site to anyone who should have assistance about this issue.
