Early Reader Review of Mouse Makes Words by Kathryn Heling & Deborah Hembrook

Read for: Early Reader Challenge

Synopsis: "A little mouse zooms about changing letters—for example, substituting P for C to change a Cup into a Pup. A beginning reader rhyming extravaganza that emphasizes initial sound substitution."

My Review: This might be the best Level One early reader book I have come across. Munchkin has been carrying this one around with him everywhere because he is so proud to be able to read so much of it on his own. While it isn't quite a traditional story, it does have enough of a plot line to keep kids interested. It combines the story with fun rhymes and short, easy words to sound out. Definitely one worth picking up for your young emerging reader.

My Rating: Munchkin had picked this book out on his own at the store and it has quickly become a favorite for him.  It is a great way to show rhyming with simple words (like Cup the C falls down and mouse adds a P to make it Pup). A fun and cute book that young readers will be able to participate in and feel proud of their own progress. We give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
