Inside Mouse, Outside Mouse

Summary:

Both the inside mouse and the outside mouse have their sleeping places, their homes, and their adventures. Follow them both as they trace the inside and outside routes to each other's homes.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The illustrations are beautiful and the book is great for a beginning reader.

Content Awareness Factors:

The story might be confusing if your child is just beginning to read on his own as it jumps from Inside to Outside and back again. That said, the sentences are almost identical so the repetition in the reading is good.


Little Kid Reaction

My son liked the book and how each mouse did the same thing but in a different location. He especially liked picking out details in the illustrations. He didn't mind reading it once, but didn't want to read it again. The story didn’t really grab his attention but he liked finding the story within the pictures.

Parent Reaction

I liked the book, but it doesn't rank as one of my favorites. The illustrations are beautiful and wonderfully detailed, but I felt the story jumped around too much trying to compare the inside and outside mice.

Type of Book:
This is a story that will remind you of the City Mouse-Country Mouse tale.
Educational Themes:

The illustrations make it easy to explore the story and make comparisons of the two environments. The first time through, as you're getting ready to move from Inside to Outside, ask your child to predict what the differences would be.
