If you give mouse a cookie/ by Laura Numeroff

Giving a hungry traveler a cookie might seem like a nice thing to do, but in IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE by Laura Joffe Numeroff, it is only the first in a series of interconnected and ever-increasing requests.  Brightly colored illustrations by Felicia Bond accompany the narration about how giving a mouse a cookie will lead him to ask for a glass of milk, and then a straw, and so on. Young readers will be amazed to see how giving a tiny mouse a small snack can actually result in having the mouse give himself a haircut, sweep and mop the house, and draw himself a picture.  It's a good segue to a lesson about the repercussions and unforeseen effects of our decisions and actions.
