I am utterly sick of reading it, because it's been a firm favourite for a least a solid month. The rhymes roll nicely off the tongue, too. The morality is nice. We'll end up owning the rest of them soon, I know it.
Is it a lovely book? Yes.
Are the pictures lovely? Yes. I've enjoyed explaining to my little boy about the different ways of shading things too; pointillism as shading is an art style not often seen. He was very curious about it.
Does it make my child happy, engaged, and want to read it again and again? You bet.
Does he make a much better effort to do kind things now? And can I tell him he should be nicer when he's being less than well behaved? Yes, and yes. It's lovely.
But for someone who proof-reads, I thoroughly ITCH when I read this.
I will soon go through with Tippex and a thin black permanent pen to correct the myriad of punctuation mistakes before my child learns to read and internalises the incorrect or consistently inconsistent way of punctuating speech, etc.
I hope in future editions this is rectified.
The vocabulary is varied and colourful, but at the same time has the repetitiveness that children like. The moral of the story is to be kind and helpful which is one of the nicest things to teach young children.
It is about helping someone and them in turn helping someone else. I like the simple way the story is told and the numerous illustrations are colourful and explain the text as you go along.
This is a great book for teaching young children about helping others and being unselfish.
The rhyming text will keep young children engaged and entertained. There is quite a bit of repetition which helps younger children to understand the concept of sharing and the examples of the different animals such as frog, bat, mole, rat, dog, cow and more making it fun.
It is all about Harry the mouse who starts off doing a good deed for someone and then instead of wanting a reward asks that the frog pays the kind deed forward. This then continues as each recipient pays it forward.
The book has a great moral tale for children to follow, showing that one good deed leads to another and you don't necessarily have to get something in return to feel good. It is a great lesson for all children.
I thoroughly recommend this book if you have children or grandchildren. It comes in Kindle form or paperback form.
I highly recommend not only this book but all the books in the series
Harry the Happy Mouse himself is adorable, and the illustrations are a delight throughout. Children will adore the illustrations and how the story develops to show when you offer help, you are rewarded back much more thus benefiting everyone.
Earlier today we read this story out to a group of 5 year olds and they adored the characters and the personalities coming through, and we had to read it again.
More from this author please.
This rhyming story is beautifully written, it's great to read out loud and my little ones had fun joining in with '...just give them a hand.' We also loved the cute and colourful illustrations by Janelle Dimmett; they really make it a special book. Now we're looking forward to the next book to see how far Harry the happy mouse can spread his magic.
