This book is an easy read, and the illustrations are adorable. I would say this book can be used in preschool to first grade.

I love this poem, it's an old favorite from my childhood. I have to admit I don't find these mice, with their buggy eyes and buck teeth, especially appealing. But I guess that fits with the line, "No one seems to like them much." :) And I *love* getting to the end and finding out who the narrator is!

This creatively illustrated story is for younger readers’ who are just learning how to read. This book is about mice, and a fun day in their life, from a cat’s point of view. The simple words on each page and the fun story line, makes this book a hit with young children. Ehlert keeps the children engaged with her creative illustrations. Ehlert is the celebrated illustrator of many adored children’s books for young children, including; Color Zoo, which is a Caldecott Honor Book. Ehlert lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. -Andrea ( )

Rose Fyleman's MICE was one of my earliest favorite poems. I remember sitting in my footie-pajamas and asking my father to read it 'one more time', and I remember sitting down by myself working to memorize it. And to this day I still know it by heart, and it's still dear to me. (Of course I shared MICE with my own children.)

What Lois Ehlert brings to the poem is her wonderful whimsical artwork. In this case multi-media of paper and string and drawings. So you'll get to see the two toothy mice with combs and toothbrushes --the latter obviously one of the ways they keep their teeth so white.

Great read-aloud. Great poem for children to remember. This book would also be a wonderful start to an art project. With very young children you could cut out the triangles, teeth and string and let them create a montage of their own. For older children you could let them do the cutting for themselves.
