If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff, Felicia Bond

Mouse goes to school in this picture book in the beloved #1 New York Times bestselling If You Give... series!

If you take a mouse to school, he'll ask you for your lunch box. When you give him your lunch box, he'll want a sandwich to go in it. Then he'll need a notebook and some pencils. He'll probably want to share your backpack, too.

The famous mouse from If You Take a Mouse to the Movies and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is back for his first day of school. Only Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond could make school this much fun!

A perfect addition to the classic and beloved series—be sure to collect them all!

I take this book with me all the time, as I am a substitute teacher. Children love this book, and I can easily read it to a kindergarten class all the way up to a third grade class. I love all of the Numeroff books, and I am looking forward to more from her.

If You Take A Mouse To School is a book that will catch a kids attention. Felicia Bond drew really bright pictures and was very creative with her illustrations. Everything the author was saying matched really well with the illustrations. Laura Numeroff was a good author, but the writing was too short and simple, it needs more detail. This book is mostly entertaining because of the illustrations. Overall, I do not recommend this book because children would not be excited by the story, only by the illustrations.

This book, along with Laura Numeroff's other books, is excellent. It was a great book to use on the first day of school in my classroom.

Similar to the other Mouse books, kids really like it because it shows how things can easily get out of control. Great childrens humor book.

This story is so fun for kids that they'll be wanting to bring mice of their own to school. The pictures are great and make you want to laugh! Definitely recommended!

I found "If You Take a Mouse to School" very fun, as did my children. The illustrations are what really make this book so good."

The enormously popular "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" picture book has proved to have tremendous staying power, and so, naturally enough, it spawned the sequels "If You Give A Moose A Muffin," "If You Give A Pig A Pancake," and "If You Take A Mouse To The Movies." Each features the same chain-reaction story structure, with varying degrees of success. Can lightning strike a fourth time with the new "If You Take A Mouse To School"? Sticking with the silent little mouse protagonist is a sure-footed first step, as is the story-rich school setting. After all, what better location to help young ones identify with the mouse's enthusiastic antics?
