Mouse House Tales by Susan Pearson

Mouse decides she needs a home and asks the other animals how to build one.  They suggest their homes to her, but she doesn't think of them are for her.  Instead she wants to build a house.  And, boy, does she get a lot of help!

Blue Apple Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

This is a beginner's chapter book that well suited for very young readers.  The chapters are short and the stories are sweet.

Once she gets her house built, she starts hearing noises in it at night.  It takes her team of animals that helped her build the house to figure out how to capture the thief.  When she finds it's another mouse, she invites the young mouse to live with her.  She also decides that was just what she needed to make her house a home.

Amanda Shepherd has made delightful illustrations for these stories.  I can see a child reading these stories more than once.  They would also make good bedtime stories.  

Happy reading.
