    I read it as a child - BEST sleepytime book ever

    My mother used to read this to me before bed time when I was little. The rythm of the words and the imaginative stories would send me straight to dreamland. We could only read a little each night because it put me to sleep so quickly - even though it is definitely not boring. I was a VERY difficult child to get to sleep so this says a lot about this book. Also - it doesn't have the scary undertones like some other children's stories so I had sweet dreams about wishing wells and neverending bathtubs, not nightmares about being put in an oven. I am expecting my first child soon and plan on reading this to him too. I still remember these stories almost 30 years later.

    Another Arnold Lobel Classic

    Just like each and every one of the Frog & Toad stories, Mouse Tales is sure to delight any child. My son absolutely loves this collection of short stories. As a reader it effectively challenges him in parts, yet provides sufficient repetition to keep him on track. The stories are a lot of fun, and the pictures effectively add to the overall enjoyment.

    Our Favorite Reader

    This book is a perfect early reader. My daughter is almost five and can read most of the words. The reader is a level at which my daughter can feel confident about her reading skills while including a couple of challenges to build those skills. I also like the length of the stories. They are interesting, different and short enough to maintain her attention. This is a great gift for the early reader.

    good for reading

    There are 7 cute stories in this book and some of them are really silly, do not make big sense to a dad..., but my 3 1/2 year old son love all of them so much. Buy it if you can. Kids will like it.

    My daughter loves Mouse tales.

    My daughter is 4,5 years old. Her first language is English and second is Russian. We live in Russia now and speak more Russian, but she still like to read and listen in English. These stories are funny and absorbing and simple enough for my daughter. She loves Mouse Tales. I would recommend them to a friend.

    The Well Said 'Ouch!'.

    I liked the book because the book had a funny part when the girl wished the well would stop saying 'Ouch!'. This tale is on page 8. It is titled 'The Wishing Well'.

    Mouse Tales: (I Can Read Book Series: Level 2)

    One day there were seven mice in the bed. They wanted a bedtime story. So their Dad made up a bedtime story. The story was titled 'The Wishing Well'. One day there was a girl but she looked like a princess. She threw a penny into the well. The well said, 'Ouch!'. You should read the rest of the tale to find out what happens. The tale is titled, 'The Wishing Well'. It is on page 8.

    Mouse Tales: (I Can Read Book Series: Level 2)

    I am writing about Mouse Tales by Arnold Lobel. I like your book. It was funny when the old mouse's pants fell down. His wife gave him a hit in the head.

    Loves it

    I purchased this book for my grandson . He likes the stories but even better he can have the nook read it to him while he follows along. The only down side is sometimes I am not needed for story time. On nights he is super tired I let him take my Nook to bed he goes under the covers and falls asleep "reading" the story.
