I remember reading three books from the ‘If You’ series – If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, and If You Give a Pig a Pancake. I didn’t know others even existed in the series – much less that there was a sequel which contained further adventures of Mouse!
In this read aloud, we the readers are invited along to watch what happens if you take a mouse to school – he’ll try to help with the science experiment and vocabulary words, and he’ll definitely want a snack at some point. Chances are, he may never even want to leave!
Conclusion. Not as cute as If You Give a Mouse a Cookie – the idea feels a little worn out in this sequel.
