A mouse invites a bird inside of a family's home to show him what can be found in a people house. Some of the things that they come across while in the house are: chairs, brooms, scissors, pillows, ceilings and floors, paper, pencils, etc. And one last thing that they saw in a people house were people.

Rhyming patters throughout "In a People House" holds a significant measure to the entertainment displayed in the pages. This book is colorful yet easy to read for early readers. It allows children to recognize items that are in/out of the house and become familiar with them. I enjoyed reading this book and learned many new things.

The rhyming, crisp timing, appealing illustrations, and fun story make this a book all my chidren loved - demanding "read again" and laughing loud and joyous at the antics. I cherish the huge smiles reading "In A People House" brought into our home. I never miss a chance to read this book to a young child and always include it in gifts to new moms.

In the tradition of Dr. Seuss, this book teaches a child many common and not so common household items, and it's written in rhymes.

I remember reading this book every time I'd visit an Aunt's house. A family friend gave me a copy for my baby as it is sooooo hard to find.........Fantastic book!

I remember as a child reading this book over and over at the dentist office. Now that I am grown and have a child, this is the one book I want him to own. It is simply a fun story.
