PARENT PERSPECTIVE: IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE

Five years ago when If You Give a Mouse a Cookie debuted at the Childrens Theater, I wasnt in the audience.

I was at home, chasing two babies and reading this beloved children’s tale by Laura Numeroff to my girls Erin and Brita night after night after night. This time, on June 22 when “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” took the stage for a new crowd of mouse-and-boy fans, I was there with my school-agers Erin (age 7) and Brita (age 6).
