309F: Mouse’s House

This was a book out in the early 1950’s. It might have been a golden book, but I could not find it in their listing. The first line was “This is the house of Mrs. Mouse and these are her children three.” It was book for young children; it had illustrations. I don’t remember anything else, but that first line has stayed in mind all these years.

    This thread says that the book Matilda, MacElroy, and Mary has the lines “This is the house of Mrs. Mouse and these are her children three,
    And this is the tale of how they live and play like you and me.”

    “Three little hats, three little coats, three little pairs of boots
    And ready for a rainy day, three little bumbershoots!””

    So I think maybe this is the book you are looking for after all…
    Or there is an ebay listing right now for a book called “Three Little Mice” which looks to be very similar, maybe the same series or a different title on the same book. https://www.ebay.com/itm/THREE-LITTLE-MICE-Vintage-Childrens-Tell-A-Tale-Book-Matilda-Mary-MacElroy/281963589620?hash=item41a656eff4:g:i4kAAOSw46BZuLs1
