Publishers Summary: Join Mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie as he decorates his Christmas tree in a holiday counting adventure.

The Turkeybird Speaks:

“Soldiers! Rockets! 5…6…7. Counting and the Mouse from some of my favorites like The Best Mouse Cookie makes this so much fun. I’m really just more impressed that Mouse thought to make sure to put Rockets on his Christmas tree. Great minds think alike. Although, I think I would have also added some tractors as well.”

Mom’s Two Cents:

“I love this series of books, not just the Mouse but all of the animals. When I was young my own mother actually went to one of the first book signings I can remember and it was for the original If You Give A Mouse A Cookie book. Out of all the books though, this is not my favorite. It seemed a little basic, but if your little one is just learning to count this could make it very fun. The Turkeybird really does get into all of the fun items Mouse adds to the tree. I’m not so sure that this would be a great book for a four year old, as I expect the Turkeybird to grow out of this after this Christmas season. All in all a fun book for little counters to have some fun learning to incorporate numbers into everyday activities.”

    How cute! This series always did present as a good choice for young readers just starting out…glad to see it continues that tradition with a book on counting. (Also glad to see the “Turkeybird” enjoyed the book!)

  2. I think I told you already, but I just love the look of this site!! So cute! My kids have all enjoyed this series, too. It’s a safe pick if you need a sure-thing. 🙂

    For some playful holiday fun with words, check out The Great Mizzariddle by Roland McElroy. It’s a very creative Christmas story that plays with silly word combinations. For example, if someone is smart and intelligent, he’s smelligent. The North Pole becomes the Nole. My daughter LOVES it! 🙂

  3. Gina – Thanks! It’s really nice to have a series that has carried on from my childhood and now into my own kiddos.

    Shannon – Thank you so much! We’ve been working hard on the site and it’s nice to have things up and going finally. I will have to check out the McElroy book, I’m always looking for new things to share with the kiddos that’s fun, but helpful as well.

  4. I agree with Shannon, I love the look of this site! Thanks for such great details on the book! I usually buy my nieces and nephews, a book for Christmas. This is a great idea!

    Hi Danielle, Many thanks for choosing to follow me at Pen And Paper. A wonderful blog you have here, so colourful which is just what I need after 3 days of almost constant rain.

    Such a pity we no longer have any little one’s in the family, there are some amazing children’s books out there and especially at Christmas. Nice to meet you.

  6. Thanks Lisa and Petty Writter! I’m loving the Christmas season with little ones just because there are so many great books, not to mention all the other fun stuff.
