My five year old granddaughter loves books and is able to read fairly well for her age. I have been trying to buy one new book a week to stimulate her mind and reading skills. "Mouse Soup" was definitely a hit! Since the first reading, my granddaughter has always wanted to read this book with me. Even after we read her new "book of the week" she wants to hear "Mouse Soup" once again. I think there were a number of very good lessons for a child to learn within the book. There also was a very good mix of humor in the book to keep a child's interest. The text is printed large enough for a small child to feel comfortable viewing and reading the story. The illustrations are interesting and seem to compel a short conversation on each page with each reading of the book. This would be an excellent pre-school book as well as early grade school. If I could find a dozen more books like "Mouse Soup" I would buy them all immediately.

Great story for beginning readers. Kids can practice fluency as well as expression when reading this book. The short chapters are perfect for introducing chapter books to early readers. The story is funny and engaging as well. I originally gave my granddaughter a paperback copy of this and she read it so many times that she wore it out, so I gave her a hardback copy for her birthday---definitly kid approved and loved!

my daughter has been reading for 1 year, just reaching 2nd grade level now. I gave this to her for her birthday- she just loved the book- reading right through it, giggling all the way! Really entertaining and storyline was enjoyable for both of us. I would recommend it for any early reader.

Generally, all Arnold Lobel stories are good and mouse soup is just one of the best of it.

Our granddaughter read this book 3 times - JUST DRIVING HOME! And - a couple of weeks later (even though she has it almost memorized!) she reads it at least every other day.............. GREAT BOOK!

This was a great book for my 7 year old grandson and I to read. He struggles with reading, but enjoyed this book and was able to sound out most of the words he did not know.

This is a great collection of four short stories, linked together by a story about the mouse who then tells the four stories. Each one is very nice, and they go together very well. The first time I read this to my son, he got a little scared, though; the mouse is caught and put into a soup. However, after that first time, he's really loved it each and every time we choose it at bedtime.

I would recommend this book as a read to and reader for beginning readers. My son loves for me to read to him as well as to himself. At first I thought it was too much for him to handle since he was only in Kindergarten, but he was able to read it with little help from me. And the stories makes his imagination wonder even more.He has read it at least three times since I've bought it. Worth every penny.

I read the book Mouse Soup, it is by Arnold Lobel. I love this book. My favorite story is 'The Stones', and I love this book very much. My favroite part is when the stones tell the mouse to go over the hill.

Mouse Soup is another wonderful children¿s story by Arnold Lobel. For any 1st to 3rd grader learning to read, this book will allow the child to feel confident and very successful! Four stories are presented by the mouse, who was captured by the weasel for his mouse soup. The mouse tells the weasel that his soup will not taste good unless he puts stories into the soup. One plain old mouse will not a soup make! The stories are: Bees and the Mud, Two Large Stones, The Crickets, and The Thorn Bush. After the mouse has finished his delightful stories, the weasel cannot comprehend how he will get the stories into the soup! Mouse instructs him to find bees, two large stones, crickets and a thorn bush. Not very smart, weasel dashes out of the house to find the items and mouse escapes to the warmth and comfort of his home, a great meal and a good book! The stories told by mouse are entertaining, lively and a hoot! They will keep the little reader guessing and wanting to know what is going to happen! The illustrations are entertaining and really help to contribute to the charm of the story! A true delight! I love Arnold Lobel¿s books for children!!

'Mouse Soup' is a quality easy-reader. My parents brought this book home from Germany for my sister and I when we were little. I remember it very much. It is a very memorable 'learning to read' book. Lobel's illustrations are magnificent, as usual, and the story is very clever. Everyone should be as clever as the mouse that outwits the weasel by telling witty little stories. It is more than just a good little 'easy and boring' book to practice reading on. I highly recommend it, and bought my little brothers and sisters their own copy.

Im not sure why this book has such high ratings. It was bizarre and made no sense. There wasnt even much of a moral, except for the story of the old lady with the thorn bush, it has no content. It attempts to be sort of like The Gruffalo or My Lucky Day, where dinner outsmarts its catcher, but it's done badly and is painfully long. If it was a hard copy, I would have returned it. Horrible waste of money and time.
