If You Take a Mouse to the Movies: 03/06/10
If You Take a Mouse to the Movies by Laura Numeroff is the fifth in the series. It's Christmas themed and one that we've read both in summertime and in wintertime. Both times we borrowed the book from our library.
The story is typical for the series. One even leads to a series of other events that come full circle. The starting event is the mouse wanting to go the movies. That leads to popcorn and from popcorn to decorating Christmas trees and so forth.
My children adore this series and If You Take a Mouse to the Movies is Sean's favorite. If You Give a Cat a Cupcake is Harriet's favorite. Personally I find them difficult to read more than once as this type of circular story telling grates on my nerves.
