I thought for sure you’d say it’ll ask for a glass of milk.

u/zachisonreddit · 15 pointsr/relationship_advice

Basically two versions of the same story

One of the NASA astronauts wrote a book about these space mice. My son loves it! It’s called the ‘Mousetronaut’. Pretty cute little book for y’all with young kids.

EDIT: The astronaut is Mark Kelly and it looks like ‘Mousetronaut’ is a series now. Here’s a link, if that’s allowed:

This book. I am truly sorry that your childhood wasn't graced by this wonderful book.

..Also don't go giving moose muffins either.

u/joestir · 11 pointsr/RealEstate

They have an excellent book about this, I can assure you its a quick read. Whatever you do, I wouldn't let her stay for free. Talk to whoever helped you with the original contract (attorney or agent) about the best way to extend this. But make sure its in writing and in exchange for money

u/Joniak · 10 pointsr/pics

It's the #1 Seller in "Children's Mouse & Rodent Books" according to Amazon.

u/tom-dickson · 6 pointsr/Catholicism

Yup, I read a good book on the post-Vatican reforms, you might like it.

u/ThidwickTBHM · 5 pointsr/DeadBedrooms

I can share my experience, though I'm not sure if it will reinforce your position or not.

I, an emotionally stunted individual because of massive abuse suffered as a child, was in the habit of laying my self-esteem and approval at the feet of my wife. If she didn't like me, then I felt like shit. If she rejected me, I felt like shit.

If I was feeling like shit, then I acted like shit, which led her to find me repellent, therefore she would continue rejecting me. Which made me feel like shit...

Kind of like If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, only psychotic.

After far too long, and a potentially unrecoverable marital bed, I finally snapped out of it, and realized that the only person who was responsible for my self-esteem was me. And as it turns out, I kind of like myself.

So, now I'm taking time for myself: recovering neglected friendships, getting into the best shape of my life, learning new hobbies, and practicing old ones. Problem is, these things are all independent of her, and the gulf between us grows day by day.

u/rangeo · 5 pointsr/AskReddit

Great Googley Moogley? My three year old loves a series of books with a character called Old Man Fookwire...He often says Googley Moogley....As I do that from the show?

u/lrpiccolo · 4 pointsr/AskReddit

Mouse Paint! Go buy her a copy.

> But this doesn't explain why the infinite cycle of universes exists rather than not--and that's what we're looking to do.

  1. There does not need to be a reason.

  2. Even if you think there does need to be a reason, adding a god into the equation, exactly analogous to the above argument, does not actually solve the problem at all--it only pushes it one step back (why a god rather than not?), while simultaneously adding extra complexity and reducing elegance for no benefit.

    > increased explanatory power ... Likewise, the theist is proposing that divine attributes give us a way of explaining why the universe is the particular way it is.

    You explained what caused one thing, but then opened up a new question about what caused the other thing you just hypothesized.

    X, and (Why X vs not-X ?)

    is now

    Y --> X, and (Why Y vs not-Y ?)

    You have just as many question marks / things still to explain as you started with, so you've gotten nowhere. Yet you've also added complexity.

    Lose-lose. (Or neutral-lose, I suppose)

    Again, you've merely pushed your problems back one step for no reason.

    Same concept as:
u/PM_ME_KITTENS_PLEASE · 4 pointsr/Eyebleach

Bill Peet and his family had one as a pet. He wrote/illustrated a book about it.

u/12V_man · 4 pointsr/suggestmeabook

Great suggestions, I actually intended to post Rick Riordan as well.

Your #2 is Mrs. Frisby & Rats of NIMH

Warning to OP, Bridge to Terabithia is awesome, but very sad.

u/MisterAlaska · 4 pointsr/philadelphia

I have a feeling this movie will be dumb, given the cast, but the book it's based on is quite good.

u/kittenprincess · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm so excited for your son to have fallen in love with reading - books are some of the best comforts one can have.

Ages 6 - 8 (some of these may be challenging)

Flora & Ulysses (Newbery Award winner) by Kate DiCamillo

I actually haven't read this book, but DiCamillo is an amazing author, and Newbery award winners are usually a safe bet. Tale of Despereaux is another great book of hers.

Everything written by Roald Dahl

Just in case he hasn't read them yet - I suggest Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, BFG, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Mathilda, James and the Giant Peach, and The Witches.

The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis

Fantastic fantasy series to prepare him for Lord of the Rings trilogy I'm sure he'll watch/read in the future. Fun fact: the authors were dear friends.

Ages 9 -12 (more challenging)

The Giver, by Lois Lowry

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeline L'Engle

Holes, by Louis Sachar

Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls

Warning: he will cry at the end. Everyone cries at the end.

Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli

A runaway kid who starts a new life - like a children's version of Forrest Gump.

The A. I. Gang Trilogy, by Bruce Coville

  • Operation Sherlock

  • Robot Trouble

  • Forever Begins Tomorrow

    Bruce Coville is a great children's author and this series would be right up your kid's alley if he likes spies. Five kids go to an island with their mad scientist parents and basically have amazing spy adventures. This series is geared toward 9+ years, but his other books and collections of stories are geared for younger kids (some of which are about aliens, which may appeal to his Star Wars attraction).

    There are so many more books out there, but I didn't want to overwhelm you with choices. Please let me know if there are a specific genre you'd think your son would be interested in, and I'll try to think of more (although I was much more into fantasy when I was younger). Your son is so lucky to have a parent who encourages his reading!!

    P.S. I LOVED The Phantom Tollbooth when I was younger :D

The Colors?

>This book depicts a little mouse happening upon a pad of paper, oil paints and some water. Watch as he plays with the paints, mixes colors, spills the water and runs away. Older kids can talk about the feeling of the mouse and expressions on his face as he makes his mistake. [Apparently the book is pictures only, no words.]

u/dizzyvonblue · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The book on my sons WL is a buck thirteen over, could I have a GC in any amount and I could pay the rest if I'm a winner. It's called Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site. We have another book by the same author and we really enjoy it, probably read it at bedtime 5 out of 7 nights. This one is supposed to be even better.

Now for your daughter. I used to read this book when I was a child and it just captivated me. For some reason, even when I was younger the book had a very vintage feel to it, which made it very special to me. I would almost cry at certain parts. Anyway it's called Mrs. Suzy and it's a beautiful book.

Green Eggs and Ham

u/djcramer · 3 pointsr/tipofmytongue
u/Becquerine · 3 pointsr/adventuretime

This episode's story was really similar to the children's book Frederick by Leo Lionni.

u/AllisonChadwick · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This book for your kiddo or any other Laura Numeroff book. My girls would love this book, because they need a new bedtime story. Green eggs and ham.

u/PM_ME_YOUR_FIXIGENA · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

Rainbow Fish was my jam! Also this one book with a choose-your-own-ending and sparkly magic stones. Basically I just liked sparkly shiny stuff.

u/missxjulia · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favorite persons are my daughters Sierra and Isabella. I have one name for the both of them....Sisibella! They are my favorite because they give me a reasons to be successful and happy in life.

If you give a mouse a cookie book

Thank you for the contest.

Happy 8th birthday to your favorite person!

u/noodletune · 2 pointsr/tipofmytongue
u/Luckystar812 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

ALL of the "If You Give" books! I remember loving those a ton and reading them to my younger siblings. :)

Get those kids some books!

If I win, surprise me! :) I have a huge book list, and used books are perfectly alright.

u/browneyedgirl79 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Oh, I <3 looking for books for my kids!! They are 14, 13, 12, 11, and 5. Our son is the youngest, and he loves all the books that his older sisters loved when they were younger. :D

Oh my gosh...Get those kids some books!

u/basementg · 2 pointsr/tipofmytongue My favorite childhood book. I read it to my daughter still.

u/enforce1 · 2 pointsr/sysadmin

I'm going to piggyback this post by highlighting a few things that an overhaul should encompass, instead of just the venting above.

  • Get things done. Above all else, fix issues fast, as fast as possible. Never put it off.
  • Don't let people make you do their jobs for them. Set reasonable expectations, because if you give a mouse a cookie...
  • Communication and CYA. Quickly and efficiently record notes. This goes along with GTD.
  • Use a good ticket system. I've had a lot of luck with RT
  • Push the boundaries of whats acceptable at your institution. If the HR people take 4 weeks to fill out a form, finance takes 6 weeks to put your direct deposit in, don't let that be the speed marker. No issues more than 2 days old. No projects left undocumented.

    Long story short, you have the power to make yourself look VERY good. Its going to involve micromanagement and establishing a helpdesk culture. Make 0 tickets your goal. Every time 0 tickets is reached, give them a small reward. Make 0 tickets a mantra.
u/AstroViking · 2 pointsr/spacex

Check out astronaut Mark Kelly's moustronaut books here and here.

u/iwanttoawake · 2 pointsr/tipofmytongue

There is Library Mouse, a mouse who lives in a library and secretly authors tiny books that the children love. If I'm not mistaken, he was inspired by the all the books he had read. I don't remember anything about animal children, though.

u/babyinthebathwater · 2 pointsr/cute

There's a children's books about a capybara that I used to love.

Cappyboppy by Bill Peet. It's the cutest.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie By Laura Numeroff will teach your child a great lesson to think before you act. It is brilliant and I recommend it to everyone of all ages.

u/slatan · 2 pointsr/tipofmytongue

Miss Suzy by Miriam Young.

u/adoaboutnothing · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

At two, she's too young for this book, but I loved it when I was in maybe 2nd grade: Poppy by Avi. The heroine of the story is a field mouse named Poppy, and she goes on a big adventure all by herself :).

u/CannedRoo · 2 pointsr/Firearms

> I honestly don’t care about gun rights.

That’s your issue.

> get off your high horse and meet these kids in the middle.

Here’s a book I highly recommend. The principle applies to anyone with an agenda. Don’t fool yourself into thinking they’ll be satisfied with a compromise.

u/DraegotheLady · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies
  • Lewis and Clark and Me: A Dog's Tale by Laurie Myers

    This first one is definitely not a typical choice! It's the story of the Seaman, the Newfoundland dog that journeyed with explorers Lewis and Clark. We have Newf so I put it on our registry so our bebe can hear a story about a famous Newfoundland like our puppy :)

  • The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson

    I got this one for my husband because I thought it was called "The Grumpalo" and I always joke that husband is grumpy. Now that I've read it, though, I like the onomatopoeia style of the writing, I'm not sure I like the message of it!

  • Moana Little Golden Book

    We felt the baby kick for the first time while in the theater watching Moana, plus we both love the Polynesian music and culture in the movie and the message of the story, so Moana has become kind of a thing for us this pregnancy.

  • Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy E. Shaw

    Another gift for my husband, because he loves Jeeps :D

  • McElligot's Pool by Dr. Seuss

    So I snuck in a Seuss book, but it's not one of the most popular ones. This is my dad's favorite children's book and know he will love reading it to our little one.
u/MsZombiePuncher · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Every book in The Guardians of Ga'hoole Series, which is about an owl society on the bring of war. Teaches a lot of moral and life lessons, but in the disguise of owls. I loved this series as a child.

Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and any other book written by Roald Dahl. Just a warning for The Witches (although I couldn't find it in Kindle Format), it really spooks some children. I tried to read it to my little cousins and it just outright scared them. Although they are skiddish in the first place.

The Tale of Despereaux, Which is a book about a mouse (Desperaux) who goes on a quest to save a human princess. Great book.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, I'm not sure if this is too old for him or not, but it's super cute. And a real boy book too.

If he hasn't read them yet, every Dr. Seuss book ever.

Ella Enchanted, absolutely loved this one too. I re-read it countless times when I was younger.

The Phantom Tollbooth, which is just another great book!

u/WolandPhD · 1 pointr/The_Donald

> Now you have poor uneducated people that are angry, that will quickly think in a group collective thanks to the wonders of the internet, and have literally nothing to lose, committing violence in order to get their way

That's already happening both here and in Europe. They'll always want more, which they'll use to make more of themselves.

This classic work of political allegory is worth a read.

Yes I am. Illegals have no right to vote or participate in anything, full stop. Allow me to point you to this treatise on what happens when you let liberals push something small, like a school board election.

u/skootchtheclock · 1 pointr/aww

This reminded me of one of my favorite books as a child. The Mouse and the Motorcycle.

I'm not familiar with To Be a Dragonet, so I'm not sure what age-group you're angling for, but Ursula Vernon has some brilliantly illustrated, highly amusing children's fantasy stuff. The Dragonbreath series comes to mind, as does Nurk.

Check out her online webcomic, Digger, for storytelling style.

Unrelated, but everyone needs to own a copy of Cappyboppy to read to their loved ones in times of inner turmoil. Capybaras are awesome little dudes!
