Mouse Moves House is a cute and relatively short phonics reader for kids who are learning to read.  It has a lot of rhyming words and short sentences.  There are also a few folded flaps that reveal a change in the illustrations.  The illustrations are by Stephen Cartwright and they are so cute!

In this story, Mack the mouse is moving house, so his friend Jack comes over to help him pack.  At the end, the mice encounter a cat and Jack panics.  It turns out the cat is Mack’s friend Fat Cat.  He helps transport Mack, Jack, and Mack’s belongings to his new home.

The Complete Book of First Experiences by Anne Civardi

First Experiences

The Complete Book of First Experiences is a fun book about many new experiences that kids may have.  It has stories about going to the hospital, going to the doctor, going to school, going to the dentist, having a baby, moving, getting a new puppy, going on a plane, and going to a party.

The illustrations are by Stephen Cartwright and they are so cute.  They have a lot of detail and are really fun to look at.  There’s also a little yellow duck for you to find on each two-page spread.

I like this book because it’s fun and exciting.  It’s good for preschool up to school-age kids.

Possible Objections:

  1. In the story about the new baby, the mom is shown breastfeeding her baby.  You can’t see a lot, but some people may not be comfortable with their child even knowing about how breastfeeding works.
  2. In the story about the party, some of the children are wearing Halloween costumes that some parents may not like (i.e. witch, vampire, ghost, monster).
