If You Give a Moose a Muffin: 12/05/09
If You Give a Moose a Muffin is the second in the If You Give a... series. Here it's a moose wanting a muffin. The moose shows up in later books such as If You Give a Pig a Party.
Like the others in the series the book uses circular reasoning. It starts with the absurd notion of giving a moose a muffin (inside a house, no less) and ends up there. In between there is messy jam, puppet shows, borrowed sweaters and a host of other silly things.
My kids adore this series although I think my oldest is starting to out grow it. I expect though I have a few more years of reading them with Harriet who loves all the different animals. Her two favorites are the cat and the moose. My son's two favorites were the pig and the mouse. So that's pretty much everyone covered.
