Mrs. Tittlemouse has one unwelcome, messy visitor after another. When she finally gets rid of the spider, frog, and various insects, she makes her doorway smaller. Now the frog can’t get in, and she has a chance to keep her place neat and tidy.

I liked this book when I was little. It taught me how to treat others the way I would like to be treated. I would want others to respect my home as they respect me, just like Mrs. Tittlemouse did.

Kinda cute with how obsessive of a clean freak she is. Boring story though.

Summary: Mrs. Tittlemouse is a very tidy mouse. After many random visitors, her house is a mess! She hustles and bustles to tidy it up and discovers a nest of bees. She is not renting her little mouse hole, so she looks for the frog who is in charge to get them out of her house. After the frog

retrieves the bees, her house is even messier! Mrs. Tittlemouse hustles and bustles again to clean her house. Since mice are the cleanest, she makes her hole just big enough for her mice friends to fit through. She throws a mouse party.

Personal Reaction: This story was an okay story. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. I think that it is sort of boring.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
A. A teacher could read this story and have students write about a pet peeve of theirs.
B. The teacher could also have a discussion about how Mrs. Tittlemouse could have handled the mess or prevented it.

house then invites other mice to come. Of course so does Mr. Jackson .
My point of view-
I like to story and thought it was really cute! In a way it reminded me of my mom. The wording seem like it would have taken place back in time. Also I think this book would be great to play around with your voice while you read it.
Classroom-
Make little paper mice for art
Talk about the animals in the book and maybe do a play.

I've had a little green hardback copy of this book for as long as I can remember. The illustration of the bee used to scare me.

Mrs. Tittlemouse cleans house. The sweet story of the difficulties of housekeeping for wood-mice, and the unexpected parties which are foisted upon one when your home is made of dirt and there are several entries.

Potter used many of her skills in detailed drawing of natural subjects, including

insects and the results show it the terrific pictures.
