(easy) Snake is very hungry and sees a large group of sleepy, warm, little, tasty mice. He takes three at first, then four more, then the last three and places them in a big jar. Snake is so greedy that when the first little mouse to be eaten suggests there is an even bigger mouse that Snake left behind, he drops little mouse back into the jar and slithers away. While the snake is gone, the mice escape the jar. Snake discovers that the bigger mouse is just a cold rock. When he returns, all the mice are gone. This book is good for counting exersize and you can invite the children to count the mice with you as they are being put in the jar. Towards the end of the story, there is an opportunity for the children to count backwards from ten. Perhaps a fun exersize would be to play a counting or grouping game with little rubber mice or with the tiny color coded bears that one can find in a toddler section in counting games.

I gave this book four stars because it is a easy read for beginning readers. This book teaches children how not to be greedy and how nothing good comes from this. It also introduces number words to the children from 1-10. The pictures are fun and colorful. This book can be used in the classroom to accompany activities that include number counting backwards and forwards.

Summary: The mice are escaping from the hungry snake. Response: I love the torn paper illustrations look. I also like that this book counts to 10 and then back again. Theme/Connection: Numbers & Counting; Great toddler read aloud; could be used working on making torn paper art in class

We have purchesed this book from Chapters, the book is defected doesn't provide the end. We don't know what happened to mice after they started to rock the jar... Instead we have repetition of rhe part with snake going to get the big mouse... It is so hard to dig out the receipt from accounting office. Please, send us if possible the correct book could be used Appreciate your business The George Hull Centre OEYC Etobicoke Ontario 620 The East Mall M9B 4B1

Great little board book for learning about counting and teamwork. A pick for the holiday book drive. Fun pictures and a neat little story with a counting and teamwork lesson.
