We purchased the book plus the audio CD to give as gifts to our friends children because we love the story so much in our family. The price, facility and speedy shipping make online ordering the only way to go.

My daughter (4) loves this book - as do I. It's fun to read out loud, as are all of Donaldson's books. The rhyming is fairly simple; I think that my daughter would have loved it much earlier and she's maybe at the older end of the spectrum for this book. Still, hard to lose with a Donaldson book. Our favourite is Sharing a Shell, followed closely by the Snail and the Whale.

Cute little book if you have some spare cash Aug. 23 2005
By Lin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
I bought this book after I saw it read and acted out on Playschool (TV show in Australia). It's a great little rythmic book to read aloud and has endearing illustrations. A little old lady decides her house is much too small for her - a wise old man helps her to solve her problem by suggesting she move all her animals in to live with her (one by one). Of course, by the end of the story, the house is very squashy so she moves all the animals out and realises that her house is not that small after all! Good little tale for teaching children to appreciate what they have. Nothing too deep and meaningful, just a sweet little story. Not a must have but worth buying for your library if you have spare cash and already own some of the really special books out there.

One of my toddler's favourites May 29 2011
By L. Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
We got this as a gift. It's a really cute book, with fun illustrations and a nice message too. This was the first 'longer' book my daughter wanted to listen to over and over at about 13 months. She is now 17 months and she still chooses to have us read it to her daily. My husband doesn't seem to get too tired of reading it. Will definitely be getting more books from these authors as my daughter seems to appreciate the humour.

Fun to read to kids, but also great for small stage shows Nov. 24 2007
By A. Woodley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book - hilarious morality tale which children can understand, wonderful rhymes and beautifully illustrated too.

In this an old woman is complaining about how crowded her house is, it is in fact "A squash and a squeeze". She goes to an old man, who gives her some 'good advice' about taking in her farm animals until at last she throws them all out - and now she feels like she has more space than she could ever possibly need. Well, bear in mind it is a lot funnier when Julia Donaldson writes it!

This is a great book for pre-schoolers to act out - we read it out and the children get to be the various animals and be squashing and squeezing. You under 6's will really enjoy this one! But also get Room on the Broom and the Gruffalo by the same authors - glorious children's books all round.

Excellent book for a toddler June 9 2005
By Hope-to-help - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
I bought this a couple of weeks ago for my 19-month old daughter and she loved it right away. She chimes in now with the key phrases that are repeated throughout the book like "a curious plan" and "my house is a squash and a squeeze"! (She obviously understands the latter phrase more than the former! I give her 'squash' and 'squeeze' hugs when we get to those phrases.) The rhymes are great and there's certainly a song-like rhythm. You don't need great story-telling skills for this one. It sounds great just being read aloud. Not one that a child or adult reading to the child will tire of easily I think.
Great Fun! July 2 2014
By Wendy Unsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A really great picture book as might be expected from this author. The story tells of an old woman who lives in a small house and grumbles about the lack of space. When she asks a wise old man what she should do he advises for her to take in her hen. That doesn't seem to make much sense but the old lady does as she is told. A succession of animals are invited into the house and each time the old lady is more surprised at the advice she is given but in the end an important lesson is learned.
Told with lots of fun and in rhyme that really works! And great illustrations too.
