Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When three little mice run from a cat, they find a cluster of brightly colored squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, ovals, and diamonds where they hide until he leaves. Soon they are moving the shapes about to create pictures: a house, a wagon, and even a cat. After the real cat pounces, they hatch a clever plan to scare him away. Just as visually appealing as Mouse Paint (1989) and Mouse Count (1991), this little book features simple, elegant page design using cut-and-torn-paper collage figures silhouetted against a clean, white background and framed by a strong black rectangle. Walsh accomplishes her purpose of teaching shapes subtly and playfully through the text and illustrations. Though the statement "any shape with three sides is a triangle" wouldn't pass muster in a geometry class, it may not raise much concern in the preschool or kindergarten classroom. Parents and teachers can easily extend the lesson and the fun by providing cutout colored-paper shapes for children to play with after the story ends. Phelan, Carolyn

My almost-3-year-old son and I came across this book for the first time during library story time. My son talked about it so much afterward that I decided to check it out from the library. He calls it "the scary mice book" because, in the story, the small mice use shapes to make bigger versions of themselves to scare away the sneaky cat. He knows his shapes, but this book is great for reinforcement and to show what things can be made when shapes are put together. When my son plays with his rubber shapes he likes to try to make the things the mice make in the book. I would imagine it would also work well for teaching a child who doesn't yet know his shapes.

I love this author's first two 'Mouse' books, 'Mouse
Count' & 'Mouse Paint'. Both books had a natural, believable flow that reflected the way young children think and learn. This one seems more forced, like she was responding to demands for another basic concepts book rather than writing it on her own. I especially dislike that the shapes are used to represent things- that's a skill of older kids & quite different from the simple, incedental learning that occurs via the mice inthe first two books. The art is still great, but overall it missed the mark- it was younger child structured but possessed older child concepts- feh.

This is a great resource for parents and teachers wishing to introduce geometry concepts. We recently used this book in a CPIN math training for educators. Highly recommended, along with Mouse Count, to address new CA Preschool Foundations.

I bought this for my kindle because I needed it for my classroom in a couple days. I planned on using it on the Kindle app for the ipad. The graphics and words were all mixed up. I even tried to look at it on the Kindle and the laptop. On all 3 devices it was not what I expected. I returned it and will purchase a paper copy elsewhere.

I originally bought this book when I was pursuing my degree in early childhood ed for a project. When I was finished I ended up taking it to my classroom & it was instantly a HIT & has become a classic. They absolutely love it. An excellent addition to any child's or classroom's library.

I feel ripped off! This is not a real ebook, but some crummy photoshopped copy of the real book. It is of very poor quality, blurry, and hard to even see. The font is like 8pt.

Worst Kindle book I have ever bought. You can not see the words on the page. The text doesn't match up with the words on the pages of the book. VERY disappointed.

If you liked Mouse Paint, you will LOVE this book. The mice are darling - the story is very cute - and you can use it to teach shapes to your favorite small person.
