Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1. In a very simple rhyming story in the Step into Reading series, a mouse tells a small girl in a pet store why mice make the best pets compared with all the other popular animals: Boas squeeze and lizards shed, but "Mice are gentle. / Mice are sweet. / Mice have tiny hands / and feet." The colorful pictures show that all the other pets do very well for themselves, even when the mouse tries to insult them. The girl grins as the puppies lick her face, but in the end the mouse fits just nicely in her pocket. With its perky voice and cuddly subject, this will appeal to first readers, as will the clear, colorful paperback design. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

These are just three of the reasons why mice are nice. It is indisputable that mice make the best pets of all. The other pets in Babette's pet store will drop feathers everywhere, growl, hide inside their shells, chew your favorite socks, and maybe even make you sneeze! So it's clear that mice are the only pet you will ever need! With its rhyming text and romping animal fun, kids will eagerly tackle this Step into Reading® Step 1 book by award-winning author Charles Ghigna will be grabbed up by kids everywhere.

I am a kindergarten teacher. My children look forward to "story time" each day. When I read this book to them, they enjoyed the humor. Now, each day, they want me to read the book again. Also, they ask to borrow the book during "DEAR" time, and read it on their own. This book is fantastic! Thanks you to Charles Ghigna! Not only is he a wonderful children's author but he is also my cousin!

My son Nathan is very stubborn and doesn't like to look at "words"...just pictures. Until now! This book has enticed him to look at the word to tell him about what is going on in the picture. For example one page may say "snake" when you see the snake and another page used the word "boa". So he looks at the letters as clues for what to say....Hooray! He may just read one day afterall! Thanks you.

I think this book is really cute. The pictures are adorable. The story is great & it flows really well. My only issue is that although it's short & doesn't have too many words, I find it a bit too hard for my 6-year-old son who is in 1st grade. I think I had to help him with more than half the words. If you are getting this book to read to a child yourself then by all means go for it because it is really cute. If you want a book for your young one to try & read by themselves then I warn you that they will need quite a bit of help with this one. I highly recommend this book with the warning of challenging words for beginning readers.
