The Multiple Stories in the book "Mouse Soup" are good stories for young children to read and/or listen to. The book is about a weasel that catches a mouse and wants to put him in his soup. The mouse tricks him out of it by telling the weasel that his soup would taste much better if there were stories in it, so the mouse began to tell the weasel stories. The first story is about a mouse and he was walking through the woods and a bee's nest fell on his head, and the bees loved their home on the mouse's head, but the mouse did not. The mouse had to trick the bees to get them to move their house somewhere else, and that he did. The second story was about two rocks on one side of a hill that wanted to know what was on the other side. The rocks were sad that they didn't know what was on the other side of the hill. They asked a bird and a mouse, and to their surprise, they weren't sad anymore. The third story was about a lady mouse that was trying to sleep but she couldn't because of one loud cricket chirping. She asked him nicely to stop, but the cricket kept bringing more and more friends. The fourth story was about an old mouse that had a thorn bush growing in her chair. A policeman walked by her house and heard her cries. To the policeman's surprise she wasn't in danger, she was crying because her thorn bush was dying. The policeman told her to water it, and she got a delightful surprise. After the Mouse told the stories he tricked the weasel into getting away, to find out how... go read this great book by Arnold Lobel.

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 a nest of bees, two large stones, some crickets, and a thorn bush. Not being very smart, weasel dashes out of the house to find the items, which allows mouse to escape to the warmth and comfort of his home, to eat a great meal and to finish reading his 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!!

Format: Paperback
A practically perfectly delightful tale in the typical silly tender of a "David" mouse versus the "Goliath" weasel whom Mouse outsmarts. While the original Stone Soup story (whose story line is also evidenced here) is one in which everyone gets some soup, the 1st to 3rd grade level reader will follow the winding story trail to discover what just deserts the weasel receives! Our readers found the reading level challenging, but the story line interesting enough with its little twists & turns in plots to encourage them to push through. The tale encourages re-reading, and the dialogue closely resembles that of children at silly play... at least it certainly resembled MY children! I'm thrilled to have found readers that truly interest my children in reading on their own, during the summer, when there are many OTHER activites that could keep them from enjoying QUIET pastime!

The book is about a mouse who gets caught by a weasel and is about to be cooked in a soup (Mouse Soup). Right before the mouse gets cooked the weasel wants the soup to have stories so it will taste better. So the mouse tells 3 stories and distracts the weasel. The weasel goes & gets more stuff for the soup so it will taste great. When he gets home ...
I thought it was a wery cute book! It would help a little kid with there story telling skills. I Would definetly recommend this book to a 1st grader or read it to my own little sisters.

My son (5) is language impaired. At tonight's rereading, he was telling ME the story, & what he thought should happen next! This is more spontaneous conversation than I have ever gotten out of him. So, here I am looking for more mouse stories. Our favorite ingredient in Mouse Soup is "Bees and the Mud." There's such a charming lyricism about Mouse Soup, that makes this one of the few children's books that I REALLY enjoy reading, really!

I remembered this book from my own childhood & bought it for my son. The stories are SO much fun. A great book to read aloud to your toddler. In general, Arnold Lobel's books are just fantastic. If you like this, get Owl at Home and of course the wonderful Frog & Toad books too!
