Having been brought to school, Mouse gets in the spirit quickly and is soon participating in all the class activities by helping with a science project, doing a little math, and writing his very own book.

Publishers Description

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 the New York Times #1 best-seller 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

Reviews - What do customers think about If You Take a Mouse to School (If You Give...)?

Cute story  Mar 8, 2007
My kindergarten class loves this whole series. They ask me to read it over and over!
Not the best one, still lots of fun  Dec 16, 2006
Need a book to read to a group of kids- the "if you..." is a perfect choice. Not sure what to give a kid 1-6? Ask the parents if they already own it, if not, sure hit! Be sure to laugh with your child, make reading fun, ask them to guess the next step and pat yourself on the back for being a great influence to them.
If You Take a Mouse to School  Sep 17, 2005
I like to read this book at the beginning of the school year.
Great Going to School Book  Sep 13, 2005
My daughter (2 years old) loves this book. It's funny, cute and has wonderful pictures. It was so great she even fell asleep with it (a first).

All of Laura Numeroff's books are worth adding to your collection.
Ok, but then what?  May 8, 2004
OK, bottom line, my daughter loves this book. Loves the story and loves the pictures. So I have to give it an overall positive review because the primary purpose of a kid's book is to entertain the kids.

But I do have a little complaint, and I know how silly it will sound. This book is a follow-up to "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie" and others in the series, such as another of my daughter's favorites, "If you Give A Moose A Muffin." What is clever about these stories is that they develop a circular sequence of events that ultimately lead back to the beginning for what could be another in an infinite series of rotations through the steps. This book does not end so neatly. The mouse must return to the school to retrieve his lunchbox, hence you are taking a mouse to school again, but it is at the end of the school day, not the beginning. If there were one more page it would say, "Umm, then you'd go home."

I know, again I'm being too nit-picky for a kid's book. But parents will feel more enthusiastic to read a kids book where the gimmick is successfully carried out, not one that seems forced, as if the writer had a deadline. Or a nap to take.

Still, thumbs and tails up. I gave it four stars figuring I'd give five to Felicia Bond, the illustrator, and three to the author, Laura Numeroff.
