Seven Blind Mice

Bibliographical Information: Young, E. (1992). Seven Blind Mice. New York: Philomel Books.

Brief Annotation: This book is about seven mice who cannot see what they are bumping into.  Each mouse guesses a different object but none of them can figure out what the whole object or thing is.

Genre: Inferences

Grade Level: Pre-K-3

Readers who will like this: I think this book is perfect for children who are just learning to make inferences.  I think it provides great illustrations for them and helps them use their imaginations when guessing what comes next.

Rating/Response: 4.5 I enjoyed this book because it was a great way to introduce inferences in the classroom.  I think using books similar to this one for inferences is important.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: Have you ever wondered what something was and guessed it was something that it wasn’t?

Reading Strategy: Visualization

Rationale for Strategy: I chose this book because it is a classic book that has been used for many years.  I remember reading it when I was a child but not remembering why.  It was good going back and reading it again and understanding what the lesson is behind them.
