There is just something great about this book for toddlers. The repetitive text, just a tiny bit scary pictures and surprise at the end. My 2 year old son loves it and as a toddler teacher my class used to ask for it all the time too.

I am a preschool teacher and I read this story to my children during storytime and at their request. They throughly enjoy this book. It is a story that children read along because parts of it is repetitive. At the end of the story I bring out a little box with a tiny stuffed soft mouse inside. The children want to hold it and look at it, and before I can say "The End", they are saying, "Again! Again!"
