Review

Harry the Happy Mouse is a great children’s story. It offers a fantastic life lesson that I think is important for every child to learn.

The illustrations are clear and fun allowing a child to successfully follow the story visually.

Harry the Happy Mouse is written in rhyme that allows the reader to tell the story in a steady rhythm giving a child not only a great story but an early introduction to poetry.

There is also steady learning along the way, “The frogs they did croak, and the birds they did tweet.”

The lesson to be learned from the book is repeated often throughout the story, allowing a child to remember it and after a couple of times read, know it off by heart. This gives a child not only a great lesson learned but a sense of pride in having remembered.

When I first read this story to my child I was worried that it may be slightly too long and therefore struggle to keep his attention, but he stayed glued to the story throughout and wanted to read it again and again. In fact it has now been a couple of weeks since we first read Harry the Happy Mouse and despite having introduced more stories since then, he still often asks for Harry the Happy Mouse.

This great tale definitely comes highly recommended.
