The Pop-Up Mice of Mr. Brice Reviews
This is the best pop up book, ever! It is filled with page after page of interactive and educational fun. Journey through the book and get to know the Mice of Mr Brice. The mice like to hide, dance and play musical instruments. I have given this as a gift to many children who have loved it. The pages are a little delicate so be prepared to spend hours reading it with younger children. Perfect for early readers.
Title: The Pop-Up Mice of Mr. BriceAuthor: Dr. SeussGenre: Toy BookIllustrator: Roy McKieTheme: Animals, Telling Time, Food, Music, Alphabet, ColorsOpening Line/sentence: “In my house,” says Mr. Brice, “I have many, many mice.”Brief Book Summary: This interactive book details the different characteristics that the mice of Mr. Brice have. This includes pop-up and pull-out activities in the book the pertain to subjects such as time, the alphabet, music, and food.Professional Recommendation/Review #1:Cherie Ilg Haas (Children’s Literature)http://www.clcd.com/#/bookdetail/1/0/...Mr. Brice does not mind the mice living in his home, but these are not just your average rodents. Their personalities and talents are enough to make them welcome anywhere. One word can describe Mr. Brice's mice and this book--fun! It is alive with textures, such as one mouse's rubber band cello, and very long whiskers for a different mouse. Readers can also play with tabs throughout that reveal surprises. For example, one mouse has a hidden penny that readers can see by pulling a tab, revealing the shiny money. Although some of the mice have silly names, most of the text uses traditional words, straying from the unique language of so many other Dr. Seuss books. This poetic story is simple, directing children's focus to the action of the many entertaining pop-up features. Although the book lists that it is appropriate for ages three to six, parents of toddlers may want to hesitate handing this one over so quickly, as the fingers of such young children may not be coordinated enough to maneuver the pop-ups, possibly causing damage to the tabs and other 3-dimensional features.Professional Recommendation/Review #2:Hornbookhttp://www.hornbookguide.com/cgi-bin/...Mr. Brice lives in a house populated by twenty-six mice, who cavort behind a plethora of flaps. Each page gives the reader something to pull or turn or twang and introduces concepts such as telling time. The colorful art and rollicking rhyme complete this genuinely fun book.Response to Two Professional Reviews: The reviews each note the “fun” nature of the book. I wholeheartedly agree with this assessment. The book’s variety of interactive options include pop-ups and pull-outs, but there are additional components such as the string that can be tied and the clock that can be turned. Variety is the spice of life and this book is spicy.Evaluation of Literacy Elements: As is customary with Dr. Suess, the book rhymes. However, not as customarily, all of the rhyming words are real words. The book broaches many different topics, and the different responses that are enabled with each category gives the book the potential for wide and repetitive usage. The sentences are simple and easy to follow.Consideration of Instructional Application: Because of the delicate nature of the book, it is something that I would try to use with supervision, or entrusted to individual students, as groups could get excitable and tear the book. Because it has so many facets, it can be incorporated into many different lesson plans. Another possible usage, because of how much fun the book is, is as an incentive for students.
This was one of my all time favourite books as a kid. I loved going through each page, looking at each mouse. I lost track of my original copy long ago, but just recently found it (slightly worn, but better than mine had been last I saw it) at a yard sale. I read it to my son and he LOVED it.Since it's not in the best condition I decided to look it up on amazon. Apparently not only is it no longer being made (the pop-ups were hand crafted), you can buy it USED from Amazon for $170 CAN!Hopefully I will be able to keep it in the best condition possible as apparently there are very few of these books left. Crossing my fingers I run across another one in better condition.
This is the best Dr. Seuss book for kids who like to seriously play with their books. You can play hide and seek with a mouse, learn the alphabet, colors, and even numbers in just this one book. Amazing. Paul has loved it since he was only one and a half. It is pretty sturdy, too, for a pop-up book.
A fun read aloud book that I read to my son again, and again.
Interactive and pop-up books are the best! This one I kept until the book finally fell apart and all the pieces were ripped.
Loved all the pop-up features when I was little.
It's Dr. Seuss! What more can you say? Inspirational, appropriate and fun for any age.
This was one of my favorite books as a kid (it was called "The Many Mice of Mr. Brice").
