Description

The chickens are enjoying their feed, the dog is eagerly emptying his bowl—but Farmer Fred forgot to feed the horse. But Mouse will help, in this Guided Reading Level E story!
 
Mouse nibbles at the bag of oats so Horse can get his dinner, too—until Cat chases him away. Look out, Mouse! Cat is soon joined by Owl and Snake, and Mouse has nowhere to run. . . . until grateful Horse starts a noisy riot that gets Farmer Fred to open the door.
 
Look out, house! It's time for Mouse's dinner.
 
Perfect for kindergarten and early first grade students to read on their own, Look Out, Mouse! features a simple text with lots of repetition and patterns, supported by Steve Bjorkman's lively, detailed illustrations.  This farm is full of laughs—and a reminder that sometimes, lending someone a hand will help you both in the end.
 
The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards.  Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!
 
Level E stories feature a distinct beginning, middle, and end, with kid-friendly illustrations offering clues for more challenging sentences.  Varied punctuation and simple contractions may be included. Level E books are suitable for early first graders. When Level E is mastered, follow up with Level F.
