I am a childminder and used this book, as well as Mouse Paint and Mouse Count by the same author, as part of our theme on shapes, colours and counting. The children, aged 1 to 6, all love this book and ask for it to be read again and again. We made some 'Mouse Shapes' collages as in the book and then the children got really creative by using shapes to make other collages such as robots and animals. This book is a really simple, yet effective way of teaching young children about shapes.. .

Great book! 17 Aug. 2009
By E. Bateman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My almost-3-year-old son and I came across this book for the first time during library story time. My son talked about it so much afterward that I decided to check it out from the library. He calls it "the scary mice book" because, in the story, the small mice use shapes to make bigger versions of themselves to scare away the sneaky cat. He knows his shapes, but this book is great for reinforcement and to show what things can be made when shapes are put together. When my son plays with his rubber shapes he likes to try to make the things the mice make in the book. I would imagine it would also work well for teaching a child who doesn't yet know his shapes.

Not as good as the other ones 17 April 2011
By K. Strand - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this author's first two 'Mouse' books, 'Mouse
Count' & 'Mouse Paint'. Both books had a natural, believable flow that reflected the way young children think and learn. This one seems more forced, like she was responding to demands for another basic concepts book rather than writing it on her own. I especially dislike that the shapes are used to represent things- that's a skill of older kids & quite different from the simple, incedental learning that occurs via the mice inthe first two books. The art is still great, but overall it missed the mark- it was younger child structured but possessed older child concepts- feh.

Teacher Resource for Geometry 29 Sept. 2008
By Michelle Robertson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a great resource for parents and teachers wishing to introduce geometry concepts. We recently used this book in a CPIN math training for educators. Highly recommended, along with Mouse Count, to address new CA Preschool Foundations.

Mouse Shapes 1 Feb. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this for my kindle because I needed it for my classroom in a couple days. I planned on using it on the Kindle app for the ipad. The graphics and words were all mixed up. I even tried to look at it on the Kindle and the laptop. On all 3 devices it was not what I expected. I returned it and will purchase a paper copy elsewhere.

Simply a great book! 21 Mar. 2014

I originally bought this book when I was pursuing my degree in early childhood ed for a project. When I was finished I ended up taking it to my classroom & it was instantly a HIT & has become a classic. They absolutely love it. An excellent addition to any child's or classroom's library.
