Mrs. Brice's Mice.pdf
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- This is the usual Syd Hoff silliness that beginning readers love. Mrs. Brice cares for 25 mice. Twenty-four do all the same things, but the 25th one always does something different. If all are exercising, this little mouse sleeps. When they go for a walk, the others march in line, but he rides on Mrs. Brice's hat. When a cat interrupts the walk, it is this independent mouse who saves the day. Hoff's colorful illustrations enhance the story's humor. If Syd Hoff is popular with your patrons, add this one to your collection. --Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, Oreg.

Among Mrs. Brice's 25 mice, all but one do everything together.And this mouse's difference comes in handy when the mice meet a cat, and while twelve run this way and twelve run that, this mouse runs this way and that, wearing out the cat and saving them all. The simple, gracefully repetitive text and bright drawings will make a preschool hero of the clever little mouse.' 'C.
