Perfect read-aloud  Oct 30, 2006
This was a favorite book when I taught preschool and today with my children. The dialogue is great for using fun voices for the snake and the mice and the repetition invites the children to read along.
Mouse Count - Love this Book!  Aug 19, 2005
This book is a really fun one to read aloud to my kindergarten class. It is not scary! They love it! And the fact that snakes eat mice is a basic fact that they understand. I especially like the moral of this story: Don't be greedy! When I read it, I always hear "Read it again, please". To make it even more fun, we get a plastic jar, a toy snake, a rock, and little toy mice to dramatize the story. They love to make the jar rock back and forth until the mice spill out and run away. This is a favorite centertime activity that the kids choose over and over again. It's a great prediction book with basic counting forward and backward concepts imbedded in it. You can't go wrong with this book for the PreK/K range.
Serial killers give this to their kids  Jun 7, 2005
My own fault I guess. I should have read the reviews for this book before purchasing it. I just assumed that the wonderful author of Mouse Paint would have a similar charm for this book.

I'm sure you read the gist in other reviews. The snake is collecting each "tasty" mouse to be eaten later.

This is reminiscent of the old fables where bad things happen to the characters. The mice do make their escape.

This book got two stars because the bloodbath didn't occur and the mice are indeed cute.

Now I have to decide if it's worth returning or if I should give it away and traumatize someone else's children.
very good; but "Mouse Paint" still beats this  Mar 17, 2003
As a preschool teacher I like this book.
Far from the snake's description of the imprisioned mice making it inappropariate for children: it is a good moral lesson! Don't be greedy! It is also not a problem because mice are on earth to be food for the snakes and the preditors are not "bad" animals; there are just fulfilling their role in the ecology.
I don't like it as much as "Mouse Paint" but it is a fine counting book.
disappointed in this children's book  Nov 18, 2002
Having heard several times that this book and its companion, Mouse Paint, were clever and fun reads for children, we got this book, but I was pretty disappointed. While the artwork is charming, the premise of the story is that sleeping mice are being stored in a jar to be eaten later by a snake. Like another reviewer, when reading aloud I skip the snake repeatedly describing them as "little, warm and tasty". The idea of the mice cleverly escaping and then counting down as they escape is good, but I don't find that the "counting up" is particularly well done, so that children don't necessarily develop a better understanding of counting or numbers. To be honest, our toddler likes the book, so I've given it three stars, but IMHO there are much better books for children out there.
