If You Give a Cat a Cupcake

The Laura Numeroff “If You Give A . . . ” series wormed its way into my heart with that little mouse and the enormous cookie years ago. Good news . . . she’s not done.

If You Give a Cat a Cupcake
is out on shelves, and Numeroff has once again given kids a way to walk in the pawprints of a cute critter on the quest for the next best thing. Although parents can recognize the logic and sequence the books are teaching, what makes Numeroff’s series a hit with kids is the sheer silliness of the situations (and accompanying illustrations) and the way it all makes sense in the end . . . to them anyway.

A sweet little girl offers up her sweet treat to a kitty, who of course asks for some sprinkles to go on it, and we’re off. Coming ’round the bend after a series of requests, the cat has sand that somehow reminds him of sprinkles, and, well, you know what sprinkles remind him of!

If You Give a Cat a Cupcake
is a sweet treat for kids who just want to know “what’s next.”
