Finding poetry in common objects was a special gift that Dr. Seuss had. And no book better illustrates that gift than In A People House. The story begins when a mischievous mouse and a yellow bird tour a People House, wrecking havoc as they go room to room. In the chaos, beginning readers of In A People House will quickly learn the names of 65 household items. They’ll also learn that people don’t generally like mice or birds in their own People Houses.
Tie-in Activity: You might show your baby a real household object, and then point to it in the book. Or take your child on a scavenger hunt to see how many things from In A People House are in your house.
