If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Counting Cards

The simple humor in Laura Numeroff’s whitty children’s books makes them fun for kids and grown ups alike.

After reading the classic If You Give a Mouse a Cookie a few days ago, I pulled out a little surprise for my kids: a set of cookie counting cards in serious need of some chocolate chips. They were THRILLED with the challenge and eagerly got to work.

I hope your kids love the freebie, too!  You’ll love our Number Formation Pack, too!
