The boys and I laughed and laughed at this mouse who snores so loud that he cause a parlor chair to go out the door! They made me read it to them 3 times in a row. A new favorite book to add to our "books in rhyme" list.

This quiet family does everything in hush tones. They dare not even eat foods that make to much noise. One night they were awaken by a loudly snoring mouse. They were going to kick him out until they found that he was homeless. This book can show students how to use commas and when they can needed. This will help improve their writings.

A story about a very quiet couple who lived with their very quiet parrot and cat. Then one day noisy mouse moved in. A good book to use to talk about the times that it's good to be loud or quiet.
