Seven short tales told to 7 brother mice who need to go to sleep. A wishing well, some clouds, tall mice and short mice, old mice and dirty mice, wind and mice going for long walks.

Classroom connections: This is an "I can read book" that is meant for beginning readers. The stories are simple and the illustrations can be followed along with the text. Each story has some lesson to be learned as well. A great book to use with young readers in a reading group or to suggest for a child to read at home with their parents.… (more)

It has a wonderful collection of short stories for children. I am an ESL teacher and my students love it. The stories get progressively more challenging, so it helps to improve the students' listening skill.

There are seven tales about mouse in this book. My favorite tale is "VERY TALL MOUSE AND VERY SMALL MOUSE". This is a heartwarming story.

A nice book, children like to read. Not as good as Frog and Toad, in my opinion.

An example of a legend book. This book, the father tells seven short stories to his children before bed. The story portrays an interesting plot. The father mouse tell his little mice about seven different legends that their only similarity is that they all have something that the little mice can learn from.

In this book, mouse father tells seven funny stories to his children.
We can enjoy these stories. They're almost funyn stories, but sometimese included heartwarming stories. I think you can also enjoy beautiful and cute pictures.

A book about an adult mouse telling bedtime stories to seven child aged mice. This book resembles a chapter book- having seven different stories. These stories are adventurous, humorous, imaginative, and resembles known tales. Could be considered to be a folk tale fiction book.

The first book I ever loved. No matter how old I get "The Journey" and "The Bath" will always make me laugh, and this book will always make me smile.
