If You Take a Mouse to the Movies, by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond, follows the same wonderful format found in If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Take a Mouse to School. The story starts with the boy taking the mouse to the movies where the mouse asks for some popcorn. As readers of this series know, one thing leads to another with the story circling back round to the popcorn. Activities such as stringing popcorn, buying a Christmas tree, building a snowman, listening to Christmas carols, and making Christmas ornaments fill out the mouse's activities. It’s a fun read, especially during Christmas season. If your children enjoy other Laura Numeroff books, this one is a great addition to your library. A fun gift idea would be to buy this for a family and present it with a big box of popcorn! Enjoy!
