Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1. Burton's simple rhyming text incorporates counting to 10 and identifying colors and animals by using repetitive words and patterned language; e.g., "Five pink pigs in yellow pig wigs." Fernandes's artwork, created in richly colored modeling clay, shows cleverly crafted scenes that feature each of the 10 animals. Unfortunately, the characters are a little too cute, giving the book a mass-market look. On the plus side, toddlers and preschoolers will be immediately attracted to this simple, clever multi-concept book, and very young readers can easily combine the words with the picture clues to "read" the text themselves. Also, visually observant children will notice the gray mouse collecting an item on each page to take back to its "black mouse house" at the end of the story.?Gale W.

From Kirkus Reviews

Readers will be entranced from the minute they see one gray mouse greeting the day from its black teapot's doorstep on the cover. The mouse is snuggled into its teacup bed asleep on the first page, stretching awake on the title page, munching a carrot on the final page, increasingly endearing in its various colorful Fimo modeling-compound incarnations. Equally captivating are the two black cats on an orange cat mat and the three orange snakes in a blue snake lake, up to ten and through several colors. The book surprises and amuses with every pagethe five pink pigs in yellow pig wigs are particularly winsomedrawing in young learners as well as those who already grasp counting and colors.

Busy Little Mouse, One Grey Mouse, and the others in this series are great rhyming books for really little kids. One Grey Mouse is good for babys up to two years old and teaches numbers and colours, Busy Little Mouse is good for one and two year olds teaches animals and the sounds they make, Big Week for little Mouse is good for two to three year olds and teaches days of the week, Sleepy Little Mouse is a lovely story about a small mouse who doesn't want to nap and cries himself a river out to sea, but mom gets a boat and rescues him. Our kids loved these books because of the bright fun pictures and the rhymes and we didn't get tired of reading them like many other inane kids books.

The illustrations in this book are absolutely stunning. They are photographed of modeled clay, and look as crisp and whimsical as the works of Nick Parks (of Wallace and Grommit fame). The sequencing and rhyming of colors and objects is clever, and is still fun the 10th or 20th+ time you read it to your little one. My daughter loves looking for the gray mouse in every picture, and I am still finding new things to discover in the pictures myself. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Ideal for children from 1-3.

The rhythmic text and the brightly-coloured illustrations captivated my child as early as 4 months of age. The repetition of colour from one page to the next and the little mouse collecting a souvenir in each illustration only add that much more to an engaging read-aloud experience.

Wonderful book with many layers (even for grown-ups!) Sept. 17 2009

I got this book for my boys (20 months) from the library a few weeks ago. At first reading, I thought it was a cute, simple counting book with beautiful illustrations. Well, after reading it MANY times, I am finding that there is so much more to this little book! I keep discovering new concepts in it and am excited to share these with my boys. For instance, The colors connect from one page to the next...The little mouse actually collects items from each animal he visits that show up on the last page...and the color of the item he collects corresponds to the color of the animals he visits! We love this book and since it's a library book, I think I will have to buy our own copy! Enjoy!!
Sooooo fun! Dec 17 2014

My mom purchased this for me when I was young. Now I have children I love reading it to them. I loved working with sculpy clay and that's what inspired the purchase years ago. I now read it to my kids and they love it. The fact that The illustrations are all done in Clay adds so much interest. For that reason it appeals to all ages. My kids were amazed that this was made in Clay. It's inspiring to see what you can create with Clay. So so fun! Highly recommend!

Great for learners focusing on number words and color words. Repetition and detailed fun pictures make this a good first reader.
