3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Alexander Bryce TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Mar. 2009
Format: Hardcover
This has everything for the very young [I would say 1 to 3 year olds]. It engages sight, sound and touch. Beautifully illustrated with bright eyecatching colours and a compelling variety of touchy feely hands on pages. The rhythm, rhyme and cadence of the words makes this a book which will elicit that age old bedtime plea 'Read it again please - just one more time'. And you know what, you will never tire of reading it again and again. My family are all grown up now and I am sure that their enduring love of books started with this full of fun kiddies masterpiece which after over 30 years in circulation is still as fresh as ever.
I think I'll read again, just one more time, just for fun.

What a shame that book is out of print. Why are the best books not around anymore ?
Not for children on their own, as too much will be destroyed without guidance, but a wealth of learning and fun for an adult and a tot together. All the various mice, their different characters and habits, like a mini cosmos, also learning the A B C and counting.

A classic oldie. Totally brilliant. Hours of fun for five year old, who loves playing about with words. Hard to track down but my copy was in as new condition and looked unused.

My kids love this book 9 Dec. 2003
By Marie V. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
So much so, in fact, that we are now purchasing our third copy. Each of our previous copies has held up remarkably well considering how well-loved they were, but as with all books with moving pieces, eventually you need to reinvest. My son, now five, adored this. The page that introduces you to the 26 mice in Mr. Brice's house was a perennial favorite for him and taught him phonics as well as being just plain fun. Your child will get exposure to opposites, reasoning and problem solving, and to many other great skills, all while having a blast with this book. Well worth the investment, even the third time around (in fact, I'm counting on it keeping my two-year-old daughter occupied on a six-hour flight!).

Pop Up Mice of Mr. Brice 23 Sept. 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is about the mice in Mr. Brice's home and what they do. It teaches the kids about so many different things like counting, alphabet, measuring, colors, telling time, and so many other things. The age level would probably be around the age of eight at the most that they would learn something, any older they would probably just find the pop ups and pictures amusing. I think the book was excellent for children and I think any child who reads this will enjoy it and learn.

The Pop-up Mice of Mr. Brice 9 Dec. 2002
By Squirrely - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the cutest childrens books I have ever seen. I bought one for my daughter when she was little and now I buy them as gifts for other young children I know.
A very non-traditional Seuss activity book - great fun! 26 Jan. 2014
By Grandma Zizzy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Wow - what a neat book with pop-ups, tabs to pull, flaps to open... teaches about letters, colors, telling time, measuring, hide & seek - a very non-traditional book by Dr. Seuss! This one is actually written under one of the pen names used by Theodor Geisel for books he authored but didn't illustrate, Theo. LeSieg (Geisel - otherwise known as Dr. Seuss - spelled backward). The illustrations by Roy McKie are funny and colorful, complemented by the simple words and rhymes of the Seuss books included in the "Bright and Early Books" shootoff of the "Beginner Books" series.

When it came time for our younger grandson's first Christmas, he was just 9 months old. Grandpa & I thought it would be a better idea - since we already had an overabundance of toddler toys in the house that our older grandson no longer played with - to have his gifts that year be the beginning of a complete collection of Dr. Seuss books. The older one (4 year age difference) was able to start enjoying the "Beginner Books" series (age 4-8) immediately, and the (now 22 month old) younger one has graduated from board books to this "Bright and Early Books" series, with the clever tag line of being "for Beginning Beginners" (age 3 & under). Although it doesn't have the "Bright and Early Books" logo on the book, it's our understanding that it's part of the series, and BOTH of our grandsons enjoy it! (Do have to say that our younger grandson isn't as gentle as the older one when it comes to books - or anything else, for that matter! - so I wouldn't just hand him this book unless I was right there beside him... although the pages are of a sturdier construction than typical paper stock, this is NOT a board book, and there wouldn't be too many tabs, flaps or pop-ups remaining if I left him to his own devices at this point!)

It's been such a rewarding experience to be in a position at this stage of the game to be able to stay at home with my grandsons while my son and daughter-in-law head off to work. I wasn't able to with my own two grown sons, so I've taken great delight in these going on six past years of being so actively involved in their learning and development. The collection of Seuss books was a great investment that we're getting a LOT of mileage out of! "The Pop-Up Mice of Mr. Brice" was the seventh of a dozen Seuss books in the "Bright and Early Books" series. In case you're interested, the other books in the series are: "The Foot Book", "The Eye Book", "Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?", "In A People House", "Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!", "The Shape of Me and Other Stuff", "There's a Wocket in My Pocket!", "Great Day for Up", "Would You Rather Be a Bullfrog?", "Hooper Humperdink...? Not Him!", and "The Tooth Book".
