There are 2 reasons of why I liked this book. First I liked that the book was written very simply for young children to where the word would rhyme like "mouse" and "house". This I thought was really good because this allowed the children to learn rhyming words, but also look at how those words are created because they are simple words that the child could look at the illustrations and most likely be able to follow along with the story. The simple writing is great for young children who are just starting out with reading and are using basic words that children at that age should be able to recognize. Also, I did enjoy the illustrations in this book because as I once stated, they flowed really well with the book, when they talked about the mouse, they would draw the mouse doing whatever was being said or done, which makes it very easy for the children to stay on track with the simple story and keep them engaged in reading. I really liked this book because it lets children read about things that they would find in their own home which is why I believe the main purpose was to introduce the spelling of the words or the objects that they see on a daily basis.

I think this is a learning type book. I think younger children will like this and get something out of it. You can make this an interactive book and talk with the kids about it so they can actually learn from it. Also, Dr. seuss's language might be difficult for younger kids to understand but i still think Kindergarten and 1st graders would get something out of it. ( )

This book is about a mouse and a bird who adventure into a people house and find many cool things. It shows what everything is and how it is used in a people house. This book teaches young children what the many things around their own house may be used for and what each one is called. Its a fun way to teach kids all about household items they use on a day to day adventure. ( )

In A People House is another great Dr. Seuss book that uses his rhyming words to teach common household words. Great book for children that are beginning to read. ( )
