By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 21 2009
Format: Hardcover
Children love the mouse so naturally we are indebted to author Laura Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond for delivering another tale where the mouse wags the boy. With youngsters who haven't started school being so fascinated by the prospect of the real thing, taking the mouse to school is a natural subject. So far, so good.

Before you take the mouse to school, you use a wide toothed comb to put its few hairs in place. Next, the mouse wants to explore your lunchbox. Naturally, he'll want a sandwich. That reminds him that he needs a snack, a notebook, and some pencils. And what about hitching a ride in your backpack? At school, he wants to see what's going on. He's very good at math and spelling (the most humorous page in the book). A science experiment leads to purple and green glop. Next stop, the boy's bathroom! He spies some building blocks on the way to the lunch room and makes a mouse mansion. Naturally, he makes some furniture and creates some books for his bookshelf. Later, he'll want to take his books home after he reads them to you. After school, he gets busy with sports and skateboarding until he realizes the lunchbox with his books is still back in school. So back to school you go!

I didn't find this circle story to be as appealing as the circle stories in the other stories. It's like one circle comes half-way round (home to lunch room) and then starts another circle (lunch room to home to school) that isn't quite circular. I may be too much into symmetry for my own good, but I felt off balance as I read the second half of the book.

Also, what the mouse wants to do isn't quite as crazy as is desirable. These are all things that any self-respecting child does. Usually, the mouse wants the child to do something way out. I missed that element.

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 knit-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.

My seventeen-month old son will search through his vast library to find this book (and the others in this series), protesting when I try to compromise with another selection. He loves the story, knows when to turn the page (which is no longer necessary, as I can recite them all from memory) and will accept no subsitute. I even tried burying the books away so that I could read something new to him, but he dug them out, carried them down the stairs and insisted I drop everything to recall what are apparently his favorite stories.

This is a nice book to read to young kids. This is mostly like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. It is about when you take a mouse to school. He will ask for all school supplies.(like a lunch box)

This must be the 5th or 6th in this series that pairs author Laura Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond in a creative partnership that has spawned more than a few adorable characters and situations. While the bold watercolors are as enchanting as usual, the story is weak here, focusing on action and mischief rather than the charming overarching story arc that surfaces in their better efforts. This book is fine, but others in the series are better. Buy 'If You Take a Mouse to the Movies' and get Mouse .. School at the library.

I thought this book was great! I thought it was so cute how the mouse was at school with the little boy. Overall I think this book was really good!

My son loves the previous books in the series, and this one is not bad, either. The drawing of the mouse peeking out from behind the book in class is fabulous, as is the blackboard sequence where he shows off his spelling and math abilities.
But this title lacks some of the sparkle and mischevious charm that made the moose and the pig and the original mouse such lovable characters. It comes across as a bit uninspired, there's no crazy, yet logical, sequence to follow, just a series of interesting spreads of our mouse showing off his amazing skills. Skateboarding... whee. Basketball... whee. So what?
The giggle that builds to a crescendo as you near the end of the other books is missing here, leaving you... wanting. So, it's back to muffins and pancakes and cookies for us.
