    3. My mom gave me a signed copy of this book for my birthday (at age 43), and it's just darling. Two brothers who are mice set out to find a house. They're seemingly opposites - Louie is scared of mice and owls, while Dan pretends not to be; Louie works hard to clean the house, while Dan goes out gathering treasures to decorate like dirty rocks - but ultimately they learn to survive and thrive together. Gorgeous illustrations.

    4. My students really enjoyed this story. The story has clear lessons that children can bring from the text, such as "it's okay to be scared" or that "everyone gets scared, even when they pretend they don't" The story also teaches bravery and the importance of sibling relationships. The book is the perfect length for my second graders.

    5. A mother mouse has too many little children mice running about so she sends the two oldest brothers out to fend for themselves. They end up finding a house to share, but there's some disagreements about what's important - clean house or nicely decorated. Luckily, a cat brings the two brothers back together to settle their quarrel. A little wordy.Very nice, detailed illustrations.
